PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Philadelphia woman is back at work after losing her job when she donated a kidney to her son.

WTXF-TV reported Monday that Claudia Rendon has returned to work at the Aviation Institute Of Maintenance in Northeast Philadelphia.

Earlier this month Rendon was informed she had been replaced after taking time off to recover from kidney donation surgery. Rendon said she'd been told before her departure that she could lose her job, but was replaced just days before her return.

The company initially offered to keep Rendon on the payroll and allow her to reapply once there was an opening. But the aircraft repair training company soon dropped that condition and Rendon returned to work.

The WTXF report ( ) says Rendon was back at work on Monday.
