Re: Punishment seems too extreme

With respect to your manager of the time, "redeployed" means moved internally within a division or within the same parent company.

If they are leaving the company they are being let go

  • Or pursuing opportunities elsewhere
  • Or given their P45 (UK form when you leave)
  • Or being made redundant
  • Or being given his marching orders
  • Or being put on gardening duty
  • Or sent home
  • Or laid off
  • Or going for a job interview (at the job centre)
  • Or being fired
  • Or being loaded into the shit-plated redundo-cannon.

It was confusing because the manager was being confusing to avoid bad words when layoffs are in progress. It's a shame when language is impoverished, although understandable sometimes.
