She was diagnosed with a brain tumor after going to the doctor for severe headaches. Three days later doctors went in to remove the tumor. The 32-year-old teacher alerted her employer, Child Adult Resource Services, to let them know she would be off from work.

Amanda Anderson had worked for the school for less than a year.

“My supervisor told me that I would need to talk to her director in the corporate office because she didn’t think I’d been there long enough and she’d have her call me. Five minutes later I got a phone call that said my employment had been terminated,” Anderson told Fox 59.

The school says they are within the law because Anderson didn’t have leave coverage under the Family and Medical Leave act because she was employed at the school for a short period of time.
