Wal-Mart Fires Employee Suffering Mini-Strokes, Has to Pay Unemployment

Court: Wal-Mart worker fired after mini-strokes can collect benefits

So let's get this straight, James Cunningham worked at a Wal-Mart, had a papertrail medical diagnosis, brought it to his supervisor and was told it was too much paperwork to fill out so his performance reviews suffered and he was eventually fired.

Seems to me like his supervisor is the one who dropped the ball and should be shoved down the totem pole a few notches to remind him of how unimportant he really is.

It's a small thing, one man receiving unemployment benefits in the wake of an unfair firing. But I bet it's a lot more than a little thing to James Cunningham and his family.
