Target: Salvation Army’s Director of Development, Craig Evans
Goal: Apologize to worker who was fired over her sexuality.
Recently, an employee at the Salvation Army was fired unjustly because of her sexual orientation. While the company will make no comment on whether this is true or not, they did state that her beliefs did not align with those of the company. After a clean record with the company for two months, employee Dani Morantez was fired for seemingly no reason. She revealed her sexuality to coworkers on a Friday and was fired the following Monday. The fact that she was fired so shortly after revealing this information, along with the fact that she did nothing else wrong, proves that the Salvation Army unjustly fired her because she identities as bisexual.
Not only is this offensive to the individual employee, but it is also offensive to any other LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) person who may shop at the Salvation Army. Employees should only be fired if they do something wrong; they should never be fired for things that are beyond their control such as gender, sexuality or race. Even though the Salvation Army is against bisexuality, it does not make it ethical to fire someone for that reason alone. Please demand that the Salvation Army apologizes to this employee and gives her the opportunity to take her job back.
Dear Craig Evans,
It is essential that your company apologizes to Dani Morantez for firing her over her sexuality. This is completely unethical. An employee should only be fired for doing his or her job wrong, not for things such as sexuality. It is obvious that this is the reason she was fired because she had a clean record with the company and had no other reason to be fired. Also, she revealed her sexuality on a Friday and was fired the following Monday, proving that she was fired for revealing this information.
This is not only offensive to her, but also to your customers who are gay/bisexual. If they know that not only does your company not support them, but you fire employees for their sexuality, you will most likely lose a great deal of customers. It is extremely unethical to fire someone over something out of their control. A job should be based on one’s performance, not his personal life. It is necessary for you to apologize to Dani Morantez, and offer her job back to her, for firing her over her sexuality.
