Stevens was an employee at the Atlantic Automotive Group from over a year before she decided to move to Florida. She left on good terms and during a trip back to NY, she visited her former employer to say hello.
While she was there, her boss, Jacqueline Brucia explained how she was having health problems and needed a new kidney. Debbie told Brucia if she ever needed a kidney, she would be willing to donate.
After deciding to move back to New York, Debbie asked for her old job back. Brucia immediately hired her back, and then reminded her that she offered a kidney at one time.
"My boss needed a kidney," said Stevens.
Stevens went under the knife in August of 2011 to have her left kidney removed. The recovery was nothing like she expected and she went through a painful recovery.
On September 6th, Stevens went back to work, even though she was still in pain. That is when she realized what really went down.
"It appeared I was used. She used her power and she manipulated me," said Stevens.
The boss who once asked for the gift of life -- turned into an ungrateful monster, finding fault in everything Stevens did.
"She accused me of not doing my job, she'd yell at me every day. She made me feel guilty about the pain I was in."
Stevens couldn't take it anymore and went to human resources. They informed her they had heard from other employees that Brucia was harassing Stevens. They in turn moved Stevens to another dealership fifty miles away, and than abruptly fired her.
