Congrats to Djinn!!

And they also fired Djinn's two best friends at the school. One had volunteered to become a contractor. The other was forced to become one. (Unsure about another person, who was out today)

This is the worst shit Djinn has ever seen.
Sorry to hear about Djinn's friends but glad everything is turning around for Djinn.

Congrats to Djinn.

Bad news about his friends, though - but I've been a layoff victim more than once, and, as I like to say, "Cats always land on their feet." Djinn's friends will hopefully find something more rewarding (and stable!) in the very near future.

As far as illegally misclassifying employees as contractors goes, if a company does so, it will come back and bite the company in the you-know-where, but the misclassified employee is in no way penalized.

Sounds like Djinn is lucky to have been released from that lamp!

Congrats on the new position.

The head of school was terminated by the board of directors last week. Djinn is speechless.

They did, although it may be too little, too late.
