Humiliated Worker Wins $224,000 in Defamation Suit
A Connecticut woman who was fired from her nursing home job for keeping furniture that was given to her by the family of a deceased resident has been awarded over $224,000 in a defamation suit. According to the state court decision, Laurie Gambardella was fired for violating a company policy against accepting gifts. A fax describing the firing was sent to various corporate officials. Gambardella's daughter later heard through word-of-mouth that her mother was fired for "taking furniture from a dead lady."
