Happy Birthday, Sweaty

By jezebel - 17/03/2011 14:43 - United States

Today, I got a call from the office telling me I was fired. When I asked why, my boss explained my mother called and told him I was in a "weak mental state." She thought she was helping me get off for my birthday. Now I have no job. FML

I'd tell them your mom has no say in the matter, if they don't offer you your job back then tell them it's illegal to fire you based on something your relative says if that fails, file a complaint with the dol

Just explain to your boss that your mom is in a weak mental state.

Afaik a place of employment can't just fire you over that, even if you had issues like that, they should do what they can do to help. I would fight that.

"At Will" employment means an employer can dismiss an employee for any non-discrimination cause (legal) or no cause at all.

And firing someone for a disability is considered discrimination according to the ADA. Firing someone for having a lying, meddling mom who hassles their kid's boss is OK, though.

Good thing we get to pick and choose our parents. At least you'll be off for your bday though. Lucky...!

the fact that they were fired for that seems a bit far fetched. every single job I've ever had has had a probationary period, where you either cut it or you don't. After that probationary period your place of employment would need a hell of a lot more than your mom calling in making up lies to fire you. Now I don't know the facts, maybe they were hires a few days ago, who knows.

It's not illegal. Once a person uses something wrong mentally or physically as a crutch then it can be grounds to be fired, regardless of who said it.

the way I read it was "mom calls and lies" "kid gets a call, "hey **** off your fired"" as in the kid didn't actually use it to get off work, if s/he did the reason they were terminated was for skipping work

you would not win. in an at will state, your boss can fire you for anything. unless you're in a union, of course.

Just explain to your boss that your mom is in a weak mental state.

There comes the time when mother shoulkd just stop it. And if you actually have a jobs it really is about time for her to do so. O.o **** your life, even though she didn't mean it...but I guess you could try and explain it to your boss, he/she will probably take you back

Yeah, I think it is very unfair her boss fired her. Op's mom should really know when to not get in her business. She should pay for her bills until she gets another job.
