    Howard related because the HTV staff got laid off.

    Yesterday my company laid off a shit load of employees...and one of my direct reports got a pink slip.

    He left calmly enough yesterday, but I guess he's had time to think a bit about it and now he is pissed. He has been harassing me via text message since 9:00am this morning...each text becoming more and more irate.

    He thought we were friends, I betrayed him, reps who weren't as good as him are still here...etc.

    At first I entertained his texts, letting him know how bad I felt for him...but now, it's getting out of hand.

    Anyone here ever deal with an irate employee? I'm having visions of office shootings go through my head.

    Don't reply anymore (obviously). Don't take his calls.

    1) Make photocopies of each text if they escalate (put your phone face down on copier).
    2) Give H.R. copies of the texts if it escalates

    We normally make sure to compensate the irate ones before they leave. Money disarms most of those thoughts.

    That aside, you need to report this to your current supervisor or HR team.

    You need to post some of those texts here. ..

    But the simple thing to do is add his number to your regect list...

    If you need info on what app works best, ask the people over at the The Bar what app they use to avoid their creditors

    This 100%. Also keep copies of the texts in case it escalates any further and you need a paper trail.

    Layoffs are no fun - some people handle them and move on over time... other's don't. I was with one company who had to send out some "cease and desist" letters for similar situations.

    Be safe and make sure there's some kind of security in place so that ex-employees can't get in the office willy nilly.

    don't reply in text other than emoticons
    He will have to deal with it. If you want take a call and just listen to him vent but don't say anything other than "fucking Obama" or "email me your resume and I'll try to get it to my cousin who works for the County"
    Do you feel threatened? that's a different story. But best to ignore and not incriminate yourself in writing or recorded call.
    I know its hard for females but When all else fails, ignore, ignore, ignore

    I'd make a police report, too. It's likely a crime in your state
