Hello, I have a friend that has worked at an aircraft manufacturing factory for over 25 years in Wichita, KS. Within weeks of letting her supervisor know she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, she was fired. What recourse does she have and who should she contact?
The company sent her a letter and an offer for severance pay $30,000 and extended medical care. She signed that letter because she needed the money and the insurance in light of her medical condition. She is now unable to collect unemployment. She has no other work skills.
What recourse does she have? I feel she was illegally let go in light of her new medical diagnosis. Opinions and advice?
