My sister has been working for this company for 6 years. She did really well for the most part, got along great with her coworkers and her boss. Always scored above average on her performance reviews. When covid hit her boss quit and another person was promoted to the position. This new boss made life a living hell for my sister. Making it very obvious to my sister and the rest of the team that she wanted my sister to quit. Well, it got so toxic that my sister decided to quit even without a backup. The new boss wasted no time hiring someone else, someone she knew and liked better too. Now the boss is asking my sister to spend her final two weeks training this new person. My sister wanted to close out her accounts and tie up loose ends, not train someone on her way out. Anything she can do in her situation? Pretty messed up if you ask me. #advice

"Now the boss is asking my sister to spend her final two weeks training this new person." ~Luz Ortiz

You may not want to hear this; Do I have to do it?

Answer is Yes: you have to do it. You are being paid to do a job, and (not by force) right now that job entails training your replacement. But, now you can be fired for "non-compliance", for failure to act in accordance with a wish or command with the formal requirement. If you don't want to do the job, then you can leave.

  • You might not like being asked to train the new person because you’re leaving on less-than-friendly terms.
    • But the expectation of continued employment and professionalism is the trade-off.

The boss didn't like her insinuating he didnt like her job performance, and then fires you , you dont train anyone!, But when you quit thats it . Your at their mercy! If you quit walk out the door.

Yikes. To be honest, she should just stick it out and get paid for those last two weeks, given that she doesn't have many options. It's a tough situation to be in but she already quit, she's almost there.

You sister will not have anything to worry about because whoever that she’s going to be training to replace her will not be able to comprehend her job in 2 weeks, I would suggest to just finish out the job, whatever that they’re asking her to do and don’t worry about if she is a trainer or not. And just keep life moving, it’s too short to worry about small things. When you leave a Job, always leave it in good standings in such a way that they will miss you .and you won’t ever have to worry if I did the right thing. Tell your Sister good luck on her endeavors.

Yeah, the boss is not playing nice. The only issue with leaving before the two weeks is that your sister might be burning bridges. Like her leaving now might affect other people in the team, not just the boss. People that could help her out by being references later on or point her to job leads.
