NEW YORK – A woman in New York donated her kidney but was fired soon after the operation following the complaints she filed with the New York State Division of Human Rights.

Deborah Stevens said her employer, Atlantic Automotive Group, has exploited her disabilities caused by the complicated surgery. She has planned to sue the company for damages while her employer said that her complaints are meaningless. Stevens’ attorney Lenard Leeds, said, “My gal is just a good-natured woman who’s trying to save a life and as soon as she did it, everything changed, when she wanted to take time off, she was scolded, she was yelled at. Instead of being sympathetic, they were very hostile towards her.” Stevens first offered to donate her kidney to her boss Jacqueline Brucia, who was in need of kidney. The boss rejected her at that time but asked later if she is still willing to donate her kidney. Stevens agreed and donated her kidney to a stranger so that her boss can get a good match in a chain of donations.

Consequences of the welfare

She was operated for kidney transplant and returned back at work after one month. She faced damages in nerves of her legs, digestive problems and mental health issues. Stevens complained about her boss to the human resources about her unfair behavior. And she was fired for the reason of poor performance at work. While her employer states, “It is unfortunate that one employee has used her own generous act to make up a groundless claim. Atlantic Auto treated her appropriately and acted honorably and fairly, at every turn.”
