This person has lost alot lately and her employer takes care of her by,,,,,FIRING HER!!!!


Philadelphia mother was left jobless Tuesday after she took time off work to donate a kidney to her dying son and was fired during her absence.



Claudia Rendon did not hesitate when doctors delivered the news that her son Alex was in desperate need



But she had already used up her vacation time at the Aviation Institute of Maintenance, in northeast Philadelphia, earlier in the year following the death of her mother and uncle and her father's diagnosis with leukemia.


Any company as heartless as this deserves alot of calls from people that are sick of this type of action.

I am currently researching the companies physical address, phone number, and E-mail, for anyone that would like to voice their resentment to them.

I will post what I find as soon as possible. If any find this information before me please post it here.

Thanks in advance.

(So all of you know,,,I do not know this person. I am just disgusted by the way Corporate America thinks it can treat its PEOPLE!!!)

Sorry, In my anger at this article I forgot to add the name of the company that treats it's employees like Sh#t on their shoes.


Aviation Institute of Maintenance, in northeast Philadelphia,

Isn't that covered under the FMLA ? pretty sure it overrides employer leave time and such.

Ive been in HR and retail management, the FMLA is law, and companies have to follow it, though many try to abuse it, a good lawyer should be able to get this overturned with damages.



The Family Medical Leave Act, or FMLA, mandates that employers give 12 weeks of leave for illness, the birth of a child, adoption or illness in the immediate family. Certain injuries or circumstances concerning a relative who is on active-duty military service may qualify for 26 weeks of leave. Employers may be liable for various penalties for violations of the act.

Where I work, we all pitch in hours from either comp or vacation.

I think most folks can give up a day or at least a few hours to help a person in need.

I've probably given over a week in 4 years.

Its all good though. I earn 10hrs every 6 weeks regardless!

As sick as this is, FMLA doesn't apply to companies with less than 50 employees. Some B.S. if you ask me.

oh wow, didn't see the under 50 employee thing.

If enough people get on this, she will have her job back, no company wants this much bad press, no matter how small they are.

Dtto.
However I am not surprised by this, most companies are heartless. I once was told I would be fired if I took the day off work, when I was supposed to go to court to try and obtain a restraining order against someone. Due to fear of losing my job, I didn't go. I know that it's a pretty small thing compared to what this poor women went through but it just goes to show you that companies do not care about their employees.

Does it matter???

Should an employer not have more compassion than that for it's employees???

It seems heartless at first glance, but she lost her mother, uncle, and then had a prolonged leukemia sickness with her father, and then a prolonged kidney sickness with her son, so she wasn't really at work to begin with.

What about all the other employees at her job? Shouldn't the company be allowed to function, so the ones at work will still have their jobs? Why should her situation jeopardize the livelihoods of everyone else?

The positions have to be filled. The company was well within their right, and it seems like they were pretty patient during the first 3 extended absences.

Very heartless. Also, not common outside US amongst first world nations.

According to the story the FMLA does not apply to companies with less than 50 employes. What a shame they felt this was the right thing to do...they should be ashamed !

There are always 2 sides to every story. Maybe the company is showing some class by not telling theirs?
