I was fired by the world's worst boss for evacuating the building during a wildfire.

A boss has been chastised for firing an employee who assisted in the evacuation of an office building during a wildfire.

The worker, who lives in California, insisted they were simply following protocol and expressed concern about becoming homeless.

A year ago, an employee from the United States posted a lengthy statement on Reddit claiming that they had been singled out by their boss for a month.

"Basically, there's a lot going on, and I'm doing my best," they wrote.

"However, every day, my boss screams at me about minor "mistakes."

"Each day since I started, there have been emails from before I get to work (including three that day) grilling me on mistakes to the point where my boss is clearly enjoying it."

The employee then went on to list several alleged "mistakes," including their decision to evacuate the building during the firestorm "after being given a direct order to do so," according to the employee.

They also claimed that their boss had a problem with them working from home (despite a pandemic mandate), not receiving training during the wildfire, and being accused of laziness when there were IT problems.

The desperate employee then claimed that she had reached out to HR for assistance, but that they were powerless to stop her "finicky" boss.

"HR wants me to stay and has offered to look into this for me," they continued, "but the prospect of being homeless if I lose this job is making it difficult for me to want to improve."

The employee later revealed in the comments that she had been fired, much to the chagrin of Reddit users who described the employee's experience as "sad."

The alleged evacuation occurred at the end of a year in which California experienced its worst wildfire season in modern history.

California even declared a state of emergency in August 2020, after the extreme temperatures sparked more fires, many of which were sparked by lightning strikes.

In addition, the state had to deal with widespread power outages as residents frantically turned up their air conditioners.

By the end of the year, 9,917 fires had burned 4,397,809 acres, accounting for nearly 4% of the state's total land area.
