My sister was working at Walmart a couple of years ago. She was working in the bakery at the time. She got pregnant and a few months later had a miscarriage. She still went to work during that time. A few days later, she got the flue and diarrhea. We told her that she should not be working in the bakery with diarrhea. So she called in sick and they fired her for it. She told them that she could bring in a doctors note saying that she was sick and she should not be working in the bakery. They told her they would not except it. She filed for unemployment. My sister had to talk to a judge and the walmart employee that fired her. She told the judge that she brought a note and they would not except it and the judge asked the employee and she unwillingly agreed. My sister got the unemployment.
My sister now works at a different walmart and works in the garden center. Her 18 month old daughter got a cold and a really bad fever so they took her into the doctor. My sister needs to stay with her tomorrow and she told us that she is going to have to call in and she is afraid that she will get fired again for a sickness.
Walmart does not care for their employees at all. They will do anything to get out of any situation with an employee.
Walmart needs to treat their employees better, better yet, they need to treat everyone better.
