if you havent worked long enough to get maternity leave, then you must make the full insurance payments to keep it active. if she cant afford to leave work for 2 months and pay up to $600 or more for the insurance payments she would of lost her insurance. i know her problem and situation isnt a new 1, but ist is a problem that Obama care fix in the future. without a threat of losing your insurance these problems can be resolved easier.

Get rid of the one's that showed no compassion for this woman, prevent this shameful act from recurring. As a supervisor myself, I may be the go between management and staff, but my staff that are placed under me, come first. I listen to what my staff say and I learn. Under no circumstances would I put a human life or lives at risk, I would not want the loss of a human life on my conscience.

Shame on Albertsons!!!! I agree if no light duty available she should've gone on FMLA, however as a nurse I've known several friends who continued to work their regular job with lifting assistance from a co-worker..... That manager should be held accountable to disability laws attempting to make "reasonable accommodations" to keep their employee

She is already suing them, why do we need a petition?

Albertsons still should have honored her doctors note and i think they should be held responsible for the daeth of her unborn son/daughter

If, in fact, there are laws that Albertson's, as a company, and, thereby, its employees/supervisors, are legally bound to follow, then Albertson's should be held accountable. Nothing can replace the loss of a baby, but being hit in the pocketbook could be a good incentive that such a heartless situation never occur again. Doctor's orders should trump all else. I feel really badly for the woman and the choice she felt she had to make - a choice she will pay for for the rest of her life -...

I feel really badly for the woman and the choice she felt she had to make - a choice she will pay for for the rest of her life - the choice between being insured - for the birth of a baby that she was denied - and just walking away from the job....and filing suit.
