NY Says Kidney Donor Was ‘Unjustly Fired’ after Donating to her BOSS

Last spring, articles sprung up all across the web about a woman who participated in kidney swap so her boss could have a kidney transplant. “The surgery left her with damaged nerves in her leg, digestive problems and mental health issues” , Soon after returning to work, before her kidney transplant recipient boss, she was fired.

So she filed a complaint with the New York Division of Human Rights.

And they have just ruled that was she was ‘unjustly fired’, clearing the way for a hefty lawsuit.


Of course, my question then and now is: why didn’t anyone at the hospital’s transplant center or the National Kidney Registry (NKR) that arranged the swap, recognize the inherent coercion of the employer-employee relationship and put a stop to the donation in the first place? They should be held responsible too.
