Yes. It was so wrong. My friend died at work in my arms. I had to take a week off that I had the time for. But my boss fired me. I fought it and won. He lost his job.

once... i had been getting sick a lot because where I was working at the time was a safety environmental removal company and they were bringing in asbestos and stuff like that into the office in regular bags.. so I took a lot of sick days.  I complained to my employer and he didnt like me too much because I know the law... anyway he fired me because of excesive days and then told unemployment so they wouldnt give me my checks.. i faugnt it and won, I had all my medical records and notes.. after that I called the health department on him.. i was worried about my ex co workers and pissed at his ways.  they closed down about a year after.  I found out he didnt even have a phd in chemistry and that his "diploma" was fake.

Yes, I was fired for having to take too much time off (more than company policy allowed) because I was having problems with my pregnancy and kept going on bed rest.

LOL, love the cartoon!

I was fired one time...I guess.  I accidentally worked 1 hour of overtime when I was a crew leader for the census.  They fired me.  I was devastated.  They called the next day asking me to come back and I declined.  They called me 3 more times over the next few months asking me to come back....crazy!
