Does anyone know anyone who was fired simply for being fat? I have seen a lot of fat people (and average and thin ones) fired, but every one of them was fired for cause such as being in competent, violating company policy, theft, etc.
My ex-wife had an employee who’d come in late, take long lunches, leave early and not work very hard. She kept meaning to talk to her and begin the process of firing her but put it off and put it off. One day, the employee came in and announced that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. They couldn’t fire her until she was certified to be in remission. PERIOD.
