Wal-Mart wants disabled greeter to return to work

DURANGO, Colo. (AP) - Wal-Mart is offering a disabled man from Colorado his job back.

Matt Wood lost his job as a store greeter in Durango after clocking in late for lunches. His wife told The Durango Herald that she should have been contacted first because she serves as his representative for resolving any problems at work.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. spokeswoman Betsy Harden said Tuesday that the company looked into the matter and wants Wood to come back to work. She says Wood and his wife have agreed to meet with store officials on Wednesday.

Wood suffered a brain injury in a car crash and has worked for Wal-Mart since 2008. His wife said new managers complained about his time-management and she removed his Kindle and cellphone as a result.
