ALbertsons sucks anyway, look at their prices, the highest out of all stores in my city!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SHE SHOULD HAVE WENT HOME NO MATTER WHAT THE SUPERVISOR SAID!
I am disgusted by Albertsons actions and heart broken for the employee. I was fired twice for having limitations while pregnant.There should be strict laws against employers doing these kinds of things to pregnant women. pregnant women should be catered to not treated as if they have a disease.
I really don't get these businesses that are established on treating employees like kids. A doctor note is not like when ur 6 years old kid complain about a stomach ache to avoid school!
I hope she's suing that pants off those greedy bastards.
I truly hope that she seeks legal redress for this wrong. One more reason not to shop at Albertsons
How sad!!!!!!!! I can't believe anyone would do this but then again look what the world is coming to!
As Rick stated there's more to this story than is reported....the principle of 3 circles applies...your circle/my circle and the one where the truth is.....the circle in between
Sorry to hear of the loss of the woman's baby. Personally, I think that there is a lot more to the story and It probably wasn't as simple as this letter states. Albertson's didn't get her pregnant, therefore, there is no "light duty" case. If they were asking her to do the job that she was hired to do, they did no wrong. If they threatened her with her job because she wanted to leave, they are in the wrong! This story is too short(and one-sided) for me to determine that Albertson's was in the wrong.
While I agree that there is possibly more to the story, legally, when a woman becomes pregnant an employer is required to meet proper accommodations for their employee that is pregnant. That means not standing for long periods as much, possibly moving her to a new position until after she gives birth, etc.
If they ignore letters from a pregnant woman's doctor, they would probably ignore any kind of medical problem of an employee, pregnant or not.
Yes If they ignore letters from a pregnant woman's doctor, they would probably ignore any kind of medical problem of an employee, pregnant or not.
