Wow! This is my FML and I can't get over the number of comments! What happened was my staph infection was on the inside of my body...to look at me I looked absolutely normal. I didn't handle any food, just sat people at their tables. So those of you who are judging...relax; no contamination was given. And I had a port in my arm that I had hidden, but couldn't pull my sleeve down over because it was so big. As for the lady, she just wanted something to complain about. She saw the spots where the port had been and just wanted to complain about it. My manager should have stood up for me, but he didn't and instead decided to tell me that a person complained and I needed to heed what she said. It was a ridiculous time and I'm glad I'm healthy again.

I hate people like that. At least you still have a job! My boss fired someone who had surgery and the IV left a mark. A customer complained and out the poor guy went.
At will systems can still get sued for improper termination, especially if the reason is against the law or slander. if someone does a back ground check and sees that a person was fired due to supposed drug addiction, they may not be hired. Therefore, you could sue for.. maybe libel, slander, or defamation of character.
I once got yelled at because I didn't tell a woman to have a good day. (She saw a baby and stopped, while I took her husband to the booth) She didn't deserve to have a good day after that.
I don't think she has the infection anymore because the way the FML is worded it says "I was actually fighting a staph infection," which is in past tense. It's just the marks from the IV are still there because they probably just recovered from it recently.
