I am facing an issue with UWP combo box and pivot control, that I would like to discuss with other people. I am reluctant to add a question since the issue is not very common and might need some thorough discussion, and the closest forums I can find are Mobile and Silverlight / WPF.
Which one should I post in?
Read the article and was honestly expecting it to be something involving PeopleSoft. Have seen the systems set up so if you have not logged time in a certain number of weeks, you are automatically flagged as terminated. However, maternity leave, short-term disability/injury, and some FMLA cases would exceed than the time limit. It was always a headache when the person returned since they wouldn't be able to log in and get work done until HR went into the system and un-fired them.
I expect someone in HR didn't want to get a notification to review information before signing off on the termination so told their developers to make a new rule. Kind of surprised no one ever tried to use it as an excuse for some sort of lawsuit.
OK the person wasn't fired. How could they misinterpret that an email tells them "you've been terminated", they are denied access to their office and security guards escort them from the building. If the same happened to you you'd assume it was simply a computer error or a maybe an HR training exercise akin to a fire drill.

The guy did verify, the problem was that nobody could or would do anything about it because the computer was in control.
I've had a lot of experience with being on the receiving end of stuff like this (although not this one exactly). Verifying is great, but at the end of the day, what people say doesn't matter anywhere near as much as what the computers say.
