Woman Donates Kidney To Her Boss… Then Gets Fired!
There aren’t many things that should guarantee you a job for life, but donating A KIDNEY to your boss should be one of them. Unfortunately, for 47-year-old Debbie Stevens from Long Island, New York, it wasn’t. Debbie used to work for a company called Atlantic Automotive Group, which operates car dealerships. Her boss was, 61-year-old, Jackie Brucia.
In January of 2011, Jackie said she needed a kidney to survive an illness, and her donor had been denied. So Debbie was nice enough to offer up a kidney to save her boss’s life and went through the procedure last August. Jackie got the kidney and her life was saved.
But Debbie had some complications after the surgery, and had to take some time off work. But Debbie says Jackie called her at home to YELL at her for the leave, and KEPT calling and yelling at her when she finally got back to the office. Finally, Jackie FIRED Debbie for whatever reason, even though it’s Debbie’s kidney that helped get Jackie the kidney that’s keeping her alive.
On Friday, Debbie filed papers with the New York Human Rights commission claiming that she was SET UP by Jackie, so that she could get the kidney… then fired once the donation was made.
