It’s not the end of the world. Here’s a survival guide on how to cope with temporary unemployment.
No matter how good of a worker you are, no one is safe from being fired from their job. It’s the last thing you want to hear at work, but sometimes factors beyond your control are at play and you may be fired through no fault of your own.
Before you start fretting over what people might think and how you should explain this in future job interviews, here are eight things you should focus on doing first when you get fired.
Read the letter of termination and your employment contract carefully
Make sure you don’t get the short end of the stick. You can contact the Ministry of Human Resources Malaysia for advice or refer to the guidelines on their website, but bear in mind that private companies can choose not to follow it because it is, after all, a guide. Try negotiating with your employer instead of threatening to complain to the ministry.
