I requested the following week off so that I could look for another job, and my supervisor approved because he agreed.
Two hours later, Jackass called me on my office phone (his office was two doors down), and he said "I hear you're in the market for a new job. I think I can help you with that. Clear out your office, and I'll have you escorted out of the building." My supervisor resigned a week later because he decided he couldn't work there either.
There's something especially messed up about upper management getting rid of the subordinates of lower management without even involving lower management in the process. At a previous job of mine, my boss's boss came in one day and laid off all of my boss's subordinates (including me), then told my boss about it, and forbade my boss from even talking to her now-former subordinates about it (or giving them letters or reference, or anything).
Karma's a bitch though, and getting rid of me caused a major overhaul of the main corporate website that rested heavily on me to collapse almost entirely almost immediately, the boss's boss got fired by his boss for that (essentially fired for firing me), my boss and other colleagues welcomed me back once he was gone but by then I had a better job already, and soon thereafter the whole company mostly collapsed.
