I WORKED FOR WALMART, THRU A TEMP AGENCY, AND WAS TERMINATED BY TWO WOMEN WHO WORK FOR THE PROLOGISTIX TEMP AGENCY IN SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS. THEIR NAMES ARE, LESLIE AND SARAH.

I WAS TERMINTATED BECAUSE I WAS SEXUALLY HARASSED AND ASSAULTED BY A BLACK FEMALE, BY THE NAME OF NICOLE. SHE STEPPED ON MY LEFT FOOT 3 TIMES FRIDAY WHILE STEPPING OVER THEM, SHE STEPPED ON THEM ONCE, AND THEN TOOK THE HEAL OF HER FOOT, AND STOMPED ON THEM TWO MORE TIMES, CAUSING BRUISING, AND SOME VERY EXCRUCIATING PAIN.

I REPORTED THIS INCIDENT, AND NOTHING WAS DONE ABOUT IT. WELL MONDAY CAME AROUND (AUGUST 21, 2006) WE WENT TO WORK BY THE REGISTERS IN THE FRONT OF THE STORE, AND SHE SAW ME THEN CAME OVER AND PUSHED ME, AND THIS WAS CAUGHT ON TAPE!

I ALSO HAVE A BRUISE AND SCRATCH ON MY RIGHT ARM WHERE THIS WOMAN (NICOLE) GRABBED ME! WELL 9:OO AM THIS MORNING MY SUPERVISOR FROM THE TEMP AGENCY CAME IN AND SAID THAT THEY HAD TO LET ME GO! MUCH TO MY SURPRISE, I WAS SHOCKED!!!

I GET ASSAULTED, AND HARASSED BY ANOTHER EMPLOYEE IN WALMART, AND I GET TERMINTED BECAUSE I DID WHAT THEY SAID TO DO (WHICK IS WALMART POLICY TO DO THIS)AND THAT WAS TO CONTACT YOUR IMMEDIATE SUPERVISOR, AND FILE THE COMPLAINT.

AFTER I WAS TERMINATED, I WENT TO THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND FILED A POLICE REPORT, AND I AM WAITING TO GO IN AND SWEAR OUT A WARRANT FOR ASSAULT, AND HAVE HER ARRESTED!!!

MY QUESTION IS THIS: WHY DIDN'T WALMART MANAGEMENT FIRST OF ALL, TALK TO THE OTHER EMPLOYEES, BECAUSE THERE WERE SEVERAL THAT SAW WHAT HAPPENED. AND SHE ALSO ADMITTED THAT SHE DID IT TO OTHER EMPLOYEES. SECOND WHY DIDN'T THEY GO AND VIEW THE VIDEO, WHERE THE CAMERAS ARE HANGING OVER THE REGISTERS IN THE FRONT OF THE STORE. IT WAS DONE RIGHT UNDER SEVERAL CAMERAS. PLEASE NO SMART ALECKS ON THIS RESPONSE.

EX WALMART EMPLOYEES PLEASE RESPOND, AND TELL ME WHAT IF ANYTHING CAN BE DONE ABOUT THIS. OR IF YOU HAVE A NAME, AND A TELEPHONE NUMBER OF SOMEONE HIGH UP AT WALMART THAT I CAN TALK TO ABOUT THIS.

Wal-Mart Sucks.

AUTHOR: Kenya - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Saturday, December 16, 2006
I worked at wal-mart as a 2nd job on the evening and weekends. An there was 1 employee that I got along great with, and it was so funny he always, told me he wanted to get with me jokingly, and I told him no cause he was my friend, and plus I didn't have a thing for black guys. (ofcourse I didn't tell him that). Well, all of a sudden one day, I was called into the office and was told that I was accused of sexual harrasment by that specific individual. I was blown away, I never thought he would say such a false accussation being that I considered him a great friend. I became distraute, and I told them that he had been chasing me, but I always told him no cause he was my friend and besides he was married. After that I had Management on my back watching everything I did, accusing me of rediculous nonsense and certain employees spread rumors of me and some other black employee. Not meaning to be racial just not attracted to them. Anyways, I had to leave since they made everyday, a living hell for me. I went to work at Bank of America then, quit and now am a truck driver. Crazy. This is the life of getting away from all there stupid Sh*t. More money too. Good luck in what ever you do. Just Realize that you will obtain a lot of hassel from what you are doing, are you willing to go thru it? If you are good luck, and you will be in my prayers. Be Strong.

Dear Patrick:

Being the nice guy that i am, i gave this woman the benefit of the doubt. this happened on a friday, and i figured by the weekend she would have cooled off. when she came in monday, obviously she wasn't. so when she pushed me in front of the cameras and i confronted her about it, she said : "i have not begun to push you yet" i then reported that, like i am supposed to, and the next day, tuesday i was terminated. I guess it does not pay to be a nice guy anymore.

Clarification on my post.

AUTHOR: Patrick - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Wednesday, August 23, 2006
Sorry, I did not clarify the question of involving the police. I should have asked why you didn't call the cops when it happened. Going to them days after the fact usually is not very helpful.

Why didn't you call the police?

AUTHOR: Patrick - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Wednesday, August 23, 2006
Richard,

OK, now for the serious response. Why did you not call the police when you were assaulted? I mean, if you had marks on your body from the assault, the cops would have seen that and made an arrest. They could have then requested any video of the incidents from Wal-Mart. If this truly was assault, it was a police matter, not a Wal-Mart matter.

Response to thomas in Anderson south carolina....

AUTHOR: Richard - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Wednesday, August 23, 2006
As to your response thomas: yes it can be proven, because as you know, walmart has cameras everywhere in the store, and in this particular store they are upgrading and adding more cameras. The location where the incident happened was in the front of the store between registers 11 & 12, and just above all of the registers there are cameras, and they do record everything that is going on. i even checked with management before i left the store yesterday when they let me go.

So the detectives can go in there i am told, and view the cameras that are over that location, and see exactly what this woman did to me. they told me it is on video, but they can't release it to me, (which i wasn't trying to get them to do)only to the detectives when they go in there and request a copy of the video. i have all of my bases covered.

the irony of this, is that other people saw what she did and they do not want to get involved. of course they are of the same race. i told this to the police officer and detective, and they said that this can also be a racial issue, even thought i was not trying to do so, but this is what they told me. if you have any more helpful advice, it would greatly appreciated...............

I hope you can fully prove your alegations against your perp.

A false arrest lawsuit is very messy and expensive. This could become similar to enforcing your right-of-way while driving: You may be right, even perfectly right, but you could also end up being dead right.

Temps have NO rights. Sometime directs ("captives") have no rights. I have no idea what you did, or did not do, to draw the ire of your tormentor. This is someting you will have to figure out.

But do understand that if you are going to work temp, you had better train yourself to get along with everybody. There are "No Exceptions" to your "getting along with everybody", no matter WHAT the stated company policy may be. It is simply easier for the company to get rid of you than to deal with intra-employee conflicts.
