Knowing someone is going to be fired before they are is not pleasant. (The reason I know is because I do employee scheduling and my boss tells me when someone is leaving; it's just that so far, it's only been people quitting, usually temps finding full-time work somewhere else). But this is a full-time employee who's been here a year--someone I'm on friendly terms with. So talking to her today like everything was normal knowing what I know was so awkward and uncomfortable. I need a break from work...
I used to hate that sort of thing too. There was a time it was part of my gig to revoke infotech-related access when someone was leaving, and the protocol was to make it happen while the exit interview was occurring. It was not a hassle personally when the situation was like a departing consultant group or a temp clerk at end of contract, but for an in-house employee of some longer term employment, it could feel really awkward when it was obvious the separation was involuntary.
