Maybe he couldn’t get another job because potential employers thought he was a flake for selling his house fearing Y2k? Everyone knew it could be fixed months before the date came.
If he sold his house why didn’t he just stay at his BOL?
If I was forced to BO I don’t expect to sell my house. I expect to take the loss, (or collect on my home owners insurance)..ha like that could happen. Wars & Civil disturbances are excluded from coverage. Terminating your employment because of y2k? He should have taken a leave of absence, or used FMLA so he could return to work.
