I recently got fired from my job after I had a relationship with a married colleague. It’s been a difficult few weeks, and I’m still trying to make sense of it all.
It all started when I started working with this colleague. We had an immediate connection, and soon we were spending more and more time together. We kept it professional during work hours, but it soon became clear that we both had feelings for each other.
After a few months, we decided to take our relationship to the next level. We started dating, and it was the best time of my life.
But then it all came to an abrupt halt. We had been dating for a few months when I found out that she was married. I was shocked and felt like I had been betrayed. It was a difficult moment, and it took me a while to process it.
I didn’t tell my employer about our relationship, but it soon became clear that they had found out. They called me into a meeting and told me that it was against their policy for employees to date colleagues. They told me that I was going to be fired for violating their policy.
I was devastated. I had never expected that it would come to this. I had thought that our relationship was private and that it wouldn’t affect our work. I felt like it was an extremely unfair policy and that I was being punished for something that wasn’t my fault.
Then the joke was, I was fired but she did not get any forms of punishment
I tried to appeal the decision, but it was no use. The company wouldn’t budge. I had no choice but to accept the consequences of my actions. My relationship with my colleague had cost me my job.
Looking back, I can’t help but feel a sense of injustice. I know that it was wrong to have a relationship with a married colleague, and that it was against the company policy.
But I also feel like the company’s policy on dating co-workers was inhumane. It was a zero-tolerance policy, and didn’t take into account any extenuating circumstances. I feel like it was an outdated, draconian policy that didn’t take into account the complexities of modern relationships.
I’m still trying to come to terms with what happened. I’m still trying to move on and find another job, but it’s been a difficult process. I know that I have to take responsibility for my actions, but I also feel like the company should have had a more flexible policy and taken into account the complexities of modern relationships.
