  • Can Wal-Mart do this?

    My husband works at Wal-Mart part-time. He went to the doctors today and they told him that he had to be off of work until March 1. He took the note into work and the personel managers had left so he left the note in the office and went and told his department manager. She said that they would have to approve it or deny it and to check back in tomarrow. Can they deny it? I would think that if he had a doctor's note telling him to take off work, they couldn't dispute that and make him work. Would they have grounds to fire him if he refused to go back in until March 1?
    We live in Indiana but he works in Michigan.
    He works in the cooler and he has been having trouble with the circulation in his hands. He found out it is a certain disease and he was put on medication.

    Normally no. You could consult your nearest Department of Labor office to briefly discuss the issue with them may also want to ask the company to put what is happening in writing and explain to them that you may have attorneys review the situation...try speaking to a higher level of management about the issue
