CARLSBAD, N.M. - A Wal-Mart in Carlsbad is being slapped with a lawsuit.
It accuses the store of wrongfully firing at disabled worker.
The Carlsbad Current-Argus reports the retailer refused to allow periodic breaks for a long-time employee after a surgery related to her cerebral palsy.
She had a doctor's request for the breaks.
The lawsuit claims the store manager refused to let her come back to work and required a doctor's note to work without any restriction.
A Wal-Mart spokesman says he has not seen the lawsuit but said Wal-Mart is committed to work with any employee who has a reasonable request.
