My daughter (26 yrs old) hurt her foot on the job 19 months ago at Kroger on Hartley Bridge Road, Macon, Georgia.
She was hired for cake decorator. She has worked ever since decorating cakes using a chair (she can not stand for long periods of time and needs a crutch while walking.)
Her foot is getting worse and she has been trying to get treatment for several months now.
She does excellent cake decorating designs.
Last week Her boss Mrs. Dover said she is going to lay her off 3 days and possibly fire her for making 1/4hr overtime while assisting a customer.
Today Mrs. Dover called her in the office and told her she is fired because they do not have a position for her to use a chair.
Mrs. Dover did not give Brittany (my daughter) a paper of any kind saying why she was fired. Said she will receive it in the mail.
This does not make sense to me. Brittany has been working doing her share of work. She only needs help lifting heavy things. I guess Kroger has no room for a handicap.
There are other workers doing a good job of looking busy and blaming any slack on Brittany.
They even have one employee the only thing they want to do is stand in front of the cookie oven and watch the cookies cook.
If a neutral eye were to watch the cameras they could tell what is going on.
Brittany is young and her health has been ruined trying to do Kroger a good job and after three years of service is fired for it.
Reason of review: inadequate workers comp treatment.
Monetary Loss: $999999.
Preferred solution: Brittanys job back.
