    (#10) Boss Fires Employees for Putting Bird Seed Hex on Her

    In 2011, City Manager Lyndon Bonner announced layoffs and budget cuts, including some to the North Miami Police Department. Two employees, Officer Elizabeth Torres and secretary Yvonne Rodriguez, asked a janitor in Bonner's building if she would please sneak into his office and sprinkle birdseed all around it. It was part of a Santeria curse - from the Yoruba religion - designed to make the city manager want to leave his position.

    Instead, the janitor reported the request and the workers were both canned.

    (#1) Woman Donates Kidney to Boss, Gets Fired

    Debbie Stevens, a Long Island mother, donated a kidney to save her boss's life. The woman was then fired soon after, by the very same boss to whom she donated the kidney. After temporarily moving away and taking another job elsewhere, Stevens decided to visit her old town in Long Island and meet up with her former employer, Jackie Brucia.

    Brucia mentioned her health issues and discussed the potential donor lined up. In turn, Stevens, offered her own kidney if the original donor fell through. 

    A few months later, Stevens reached out to Brucia for a job. After securing employment, Brucia mentioned the donor fell through. Stevens quickly donated her kidney, which actually wasn't a perfect match, but it did help Brucia get up higher on the donor list. Stevens donated her kidney to someone else, so Brucia could have a quicker transplant. 

    Soon after the procedure, Brucia began hounding Stevens to show up to work, even though she was recovering from the very painful and difficult kidney operation.

    Stevens was subsequently assigned to another office 50 miles from her home in a high-crime neighborhood her co-workers jokingly called "Siberia." She was finally fired and took legal action against the company for its actions.

    (#3) Boss Fires Employee for Time Spent Off After Heart Surgery

    New Zealander Murray Gardiner was admitted to the hospital after suffering a week's worth of major chest pain. He ultimately had to endure double bypass heart surgery. Afterwards, records noted that the procedure was "uneventful" and had "nil" complications" - successful by all accounts. Except one.

    Gardiner's boss dropped by the recovery room for a visit. However, he didn't bring with him flowers or balloons, but rather, the news that Gardiner would be fired from his job after 11 years. His manager tried to defend the decision by saying the operation had not been fully successful, and Gardiner would not be able to resume his former duties. He stuck to this story even after the doctors explained that the surgery was completely successful.

    (#9) Boss Exploits Former Employee/Wife

    Shelley Lynn worked at McDonald's, which offers minimum wages, no benefits, and weak job protection. Lynn met Keith Handley in the early 1980s when she worked the counter at a McD's in Arroyo Grande, CA. At 29, she already had three children and had been divorced three times, so she was happy to meet franchise owner Handley. He was educated and older. And he stood by the manager when he fired Lynn for not putting ice away.

    After her termination, Handley began taking Lynn and her children to McDonald's every night. A relationship developed and Handley bought a house for Lynn and children in Las Vegas. However, as bills associated with the home mounted, Handley convinced Lynn to engage in sex work as a means of supporting her family. 

    At the end of 1986, Handley took Lynn to Chicken Ranch Brothel in Pahrump, NV, where she worked for the next six years.

Mech subsequently began giving TerVeer poor performance reviews and made some derogatory comments about his sexual orientation to other staff members. Things got so bad that TerVeer's therapist recommended that he take a leave of absence, which the Library of Congress agreed to.
