Customer Question

My Wife has worked 4 years for the company I am speaking of she, my wife had to have surgery on her right shoulder - the Doctor advised that she may need alot of time off from work - after they opened her up they had to do more than expected that the MRI hadn't shown. This surgery took place November 18, 2015. She had two weeks of ETO left until we could file for short term disability. Just yesterday (December 29th, 2015, she received a text (a letter would follow) telling her her position had been terminated. She had trained the new employee.... I believe she just started on October 2015.
Currently the new person took over her accounts. So I'm wondering why "my position" was terminated if she is taking over my customers?? Let me be clear she only had 2 customers and one of them is leaving within the next month?
