Deal for Pa. mom who lost job after donating organ

A Philadelphia woman who lost her job after taking time off to donate a kidney to her son has been offered a deal that could allow her to work for the business again.

Officials at the aircraft repair training company tell WTXF-TV that Claudia Rendon will be paid her normal salary until another position opens up at the Aviation Institute of Maintenance. Rendon can then re-apply.

Rendon says she was told before taking time off that she might not have a job to come back to. She took the leave anyway after signing a paper acknowledging that fact.

Rendon was told last week that she'd been replaced during her recovery from the surgery that gave one of her kidneys to her son, Alex.

The WTXF report ( http://bit.ly/pe8ch4) says Rendon has retained a lawyer.
