I was just fired from Lowe's. Last year I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and missed some time off due to being ill from my treatments.
It wasn't until after I was put on a final for missing work that they agreed to wipe the slate clean because I brought up other situations where employees were allowed to miss more time than me and had been there less time than I. So I had 3 occurrences as they call it since Jan 1 when they said they were wiping the slate clean and I was told that I had more than 5 and I was let go. I still believe I should have never even been on a final. I have cancer I mean really
I know for a fact one other employee was allowed to miss weeks at a time due to anxiety.
Which our H.R had a special arrangement for him. By the way I was told by the Store manager and ASM that they checked for me and I wasn't eligible for FMLA when I was going through treatments.
