Wells Fargo is facing a lawsuit for firing an employee whose daughter needed expensive cancer treatment. Three days before his daughter was scheduled to go into surgery, the distressed father was left without health care or life insurance.
The hospital immediately canceled the August 2010 surgery after the man lost his job. Seven months later, the young girl died of cancer.
"This was a loss of an innocent child's life," the former employee's lawyer told the Huffington Post. "There were [some] Wells Fargo employees who not only lacked compassion but seemed to have been motivated by entirely improper concerns about finances."
Wells Fargo allegedly fired mortgage consultant Yovany Gonzalez because his daughter's medical costs were too high. Before he was let go, the bank and its health insurer, United Health Care, questioned the man's wife about daughter Mackenzie's cancer treatment.
