    This is going to sound heartless but if the firing is warranted by the business conditions (i.e. she would have gotten let go had she not donated a kidney), then it would be UNETHICAL to not fire her because she did donate a kidney. It wouldn`t be fair to all other employees. That`s how I feel about this.

    She has an ethical duty to her company not to accept significant gifts from her staff. Ethically, she ideally would not have solicited (Fail 1) or accepted the kidney (Fail 2), but I understand her imperative.

    She should then have requested to be transferred beyond oversight of the donor (Fail 3).

    She should neither favour, nor persecute the employee (Fail 4), particularly to distract from her ethical breach.

    Having done the above and brought the company into disrepute, she should have resigned (Fail 5) and spoken up for the unfairly treated employee (Fail 6).

    For that matter, if I were the recipient`s supervisor, I would put the recipient on paid leave and request an investigation with a view to settlement and reinstatement of the donor.

    I have a feeling the donor (whether she deserves it or not) will get a 5 to 7 figure settlement.

    With the champagne, looks like she`s working on trashing the new one. Anyone else at the dealership got spare parts?

    This sounds like it came right out of a script from a Horrible Bosses sequel.

    I kinda think there may be a lot more to this. she did not actually donate a kidney to her boss did she- she donated a kidney and her boss moved up the queue and also got one....
    it `could` be right but I would not bank on it!

    Seems a lot more to this then what`s being said. But her boss never should have accepted the kidney or had procedures set in place to remove any responsibility for the donating employee. As a result for her stupidity I expect a big settlement she`ll have to pay.

    And as for the no special circumstances for having a few days off work. Eh didn`t you give special circumstances for her to take time off to be a organ donor?

    just an example of why i feel bosses uniformly suck. my last boss had me fired because i pointed out to her that she was an employee of the corporation, just like me, only with better perks.

    hope you`re rotting from the inside out, debbie. but i`m sure the early alzheimer`s is more noticeable now anyway.

    Probably felt like she was indebted to the donor, was uncomfortably reminded that the balance in the employee-boss relationship had shifted due to the Wookie Life-debt incurred, and tried to get the employee as far out of the way as possible so she didn`t have to deal with it.
