One place I was actually asked to go to lunch so they could fire a guy... packed all his stuff up while he was in getting fired, and handed it to him as he walked through the bosses door.

they were afraid he might go nuts and kill someone or somehting.

When I used to do security, lay-offs was one of our services. We would show up before the place opened, and stand behind the soon to be ex-employee while he got the news, then follow him to his desk and escort them off the property. The rest of the day would be spent in the company of the firing manager.

I worked at Newport News Shipbuilding back in the nineties when they had their layoffs. Everyone got their pinkslips two months prior to their termination date. I got laided off, but it wasn`t a big deal as I already had joined the Navy. One guy that got laid off took it well, so it seemed. He causually walk up on top of the ship to were everyone had their tool boxes. He then started grabing the tool boxes and chucking them over the side into the James river. He had thrown over thirty boxes off into the river before he was stopped. Since all the tools, as well as the boxes belonged to the shipyard, we all thought it was kind of funny. One of my co-workers was laughing his *** off until he remebered he had left his car keys in his toolbox.

You're kidding right? They have guys who have done 15 years for homicide in Local 3. As long as you pay your dues, the trades will never throw you out of the union. Here's how it works, the union guys don't actually work for the contractor, they work for the union with whom the contractor has a contract for the work - most of them don't spend more than a year "working" for said contractor. And good luck firing them. A contractor who throws a tradesman off the job is lucky if only that trade walks out, and not every union on the project - that's why there are lot of layabouts in the construction trades in NY, the money is ridiculous($30/hr+ for "A" card, Local 3) and you're guaranteed a spot in the hall for life.

A friend of mine works in the Aerospace/Defense field. The firing procedure is your boss and two armed guards walk up to your desk, hand you a check, and escort you out the door
I have to think up a whole new signature? That seems like an awful lot of work...

well at my last job (which lasted one week - last week to be exact) the old bookkeeper was let go and the police came after she (yes she - she is a very large she) threatened the owner.

Now I have watched/supervised people pack up their desks to leave - but it is so much more fun to watch someone with a gun on their hip make someone put something back that is company property than me asking them nicely.
