OFW fired by employer after asking for vacation to mourn her mother's death

A Pinay Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) from Hong Kong was fired by her employer after asking for her very first day-off in four straight months of working to mourn her mother.

Rose Suarez, 42, was shocked when his employer suddenly bought him a flight ticket to go home to the Philippines.

Four months straight of working and not a single day-off given according to Rose. She served his employer's family for two years and four months.

Rose didn’t complain even though she hadn’t had a day-off for four months, but when her mother passed away, she begged her employer to take a dayoff to mourn her mother.

“April 23 po yun, Huwebes (the day her mother died). Yun po yung araw na nagpaalam ako na sa darating na Sunday off po ako. Yung araw din na yun ay tinerminate nya ako. Kaya sabi nga po niya hindi na ako mag day-off kasi sa April 30 baba na ako sa kanya,” Rose said.

Her employer said that they were afraid because they might be infected with COVID when Rose returned to Hong Kong.
