Below is a link to the story. I find it interesting that so many people are so livid over her being fired. It’s hard to understand what happened here, as the story lacks so much information. Did she utilize the FMLA (family medical leave act), was she a contract employee? Yet everyone is so quick to villainies the employer.
If she were an “at will” employee, that did not exercise her FMLA option, then this company did nothing wrong. I would agree that it certainly is a bitter pill to swallow, but they are with in their rights to let her go. I sense that is what happened in this situation. As there is no mention of a pending lawsuit, or formal complaint.
