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

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 may suck, but now there's so much more room for activities! Like step aerobics! (side note, 94, you're adorable!)

This comment was funnier than all the "Did you punch her" comment put together. Way to finally make it funny bunny.

Hey, #34, doesn't that kind of mean you READ the comments on every FML then? Stop being a sad, anti-social loser and start commenting on all of them too, otherwise you lose your right to whine like a little bitch at other people having fun! I'm just sick of failed abortions picking on the undeserving is all, so man up, ya little weed.

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 fuck 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.

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 fuck 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.
