…..if the job that she did was too physical they are to find her a comparable job for the time of the pregnancy and hold that job for up to one year under the family medical leave act (flma). it shouldn’t matter if she was part time or not either. i would check into that.
flma is federal
i was an hr manager for 8 years. Yes fmla is federal, but fmla is for full time employees only, if you have been at a company for less than 1 year or are part time you are not eligible for it. I don’t doubt that Wal-Mart fired her for being pregnant, but proving it may be difficult.
I would check into it for sure though. This is one of many reasons I do not shop at Wal-Mart. I will not support a company that treats its own employees so badly.
