Hello and welcome. I am very sorry to hear about your niece. However, in order to answer your question I need some additional information. Can you please tell me: How long was she off work?What was the stated reason for why she was let go? (i.e. her absence from work, a mass layoff, etc.)How many employees does her company have?How long was she employed there?Was she missing work for baby bonding time, or for health conditions? I know that's a lot, but an answer to each of those questions is necessary to properly assist you. I look forward to your reply.
