I was fired from my job at Forever Broadcasting not because of my performance, but because of my ex-husband's abusive actions.
My former employer's termination letter reads: "Regrettably recent events involving your former husband has caused severe disruption to our business and has made this decision necessary."
Every single day, women all over the United States are victims of domestic violence. It affects every facet of their lives, and one of those ways is through their employment. A large amount of employers would rather choose to terminate the abused rather than support them....I am one of those victims and I would like to see such practices stopped. We have to rally against this together.
In seven months I have had to go into hiding, I have been harassed via e-mail, prison letter, Facebook, had my tires slashed at my job, had my estranged husband put hits out on me, and now my employment has been stripped from me as well. My job was the one place that I retreated to for a sense of normal and now it is gone. Just trying to live has been a struggle for me as it feels I have to fight just for a life. Please help me in the fight to stop such acts.
Tell Forever Broadcasting to rethink its decision and apologize.

Dear Forever Broadcasting,
It's outrageous that you fired Nancy Lane over abuse from her ex-husband. Victims of domestic abuse should never be punished for their abuser's crimes.
Employers should stand with domestic abuse victims, not fire them. Please reconsider your decision and apologize to Nancy.
