DW has 35 years in and is in a senoir management person. After six years under her current supervisor, early retirement was what she was working for the last five years. Now she realizes she should have given less notice.
She feels shunned and is asked to leave meetings that she has always participated in for ten years at this facility.
I hate to be the one to say it (as this goes against my nature) but I think your DW needs to just put in her time and not worry about what anyone (supervisor, coworkers, etc.) think or do. She could busy herself with personal stuff in the office - what are they going to do, fire her? Who cares whether she is "shunned" or left out of meetings (whooopie!!
) It's MegaCorp's loss if she isn't allowed to help with whatever transition they will need to accomplish as she leaves. Your DW obviously cares more about MegaCorp than they care about her. Now that she knows that, she needs to adjust accordingly. "Hey, I'm just here to max out my pension. You want me to do what? Fugdidabodit! Here's a quarter, call someone who cares."
I know folks who would (who did) quietly screw over the company for such petty stuff as your DW is facing. I couldn't do it, but I certainly would have "piddled" those last few weeks had my MegaCorp treated me shabbily.
