Mom Allegedly Fired For Staying Home With Special Needs Son


Rhiannon Broschat, a worker at a Chicago Whole Foods store, was reportedly fired after staying home with her "special needs" son when public schools were closed, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Broschat, reportedly a 25-year-old single mother, told the Sun-Times that she was a reliable employee and was in a jam that day, as she couldn't find someone to care for her son. She allegedly called the next day and was told she was "terminated due to abusing their attendance policy," Broschat said.
