Woman in Coma for a Year is Fired – Union Protests

From il Corriere della Sera:

http://www.corriere.it/cronache/11_luglio_13/licenziata-stato-vegetativo_783b9932-ad6e-11e0-83b2-951b61194bdf.shtml

An unfortunate woman who has been in a coma for more than a year, and is, sadly, described as being in a “vegetative state” recently received a letter notifying her of the termination of her work contract, seeing as how she had not been to work in more than a year.  Perhaps not the most tactful way of handling the situation, but I think her employer’s position is pretty clear.

However, the CGIL union is apparently working with the family to fight her firing, or ask that she be reinstated.

I can understand the debate about workers’ rights, but… a brain dead person?
