Former Walmart employee alleges discrimination because of epilepsy

By Philip Gonzales | Jul 31, 2017

HOUSTON – A San Antonio woman claims that she was terminated from her job because of her disability.

Megan Campbell filed a complaint on June 16 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Wal-Mart Stores East LP alleging that the retail store failed to uphold the Americans with Disabilities Act regulations.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff suffers from epilepsy and had two grand mal seizures while working for the defendant in October 2015 and December 2015 and a petit mal seizure. She was terminated in March 2016, the suit states.

The plaintiff holds Wal-Mart Stores East LP responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to accommodate plaintiff's disability and retaliated against her after engaging in protected activities.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, interest, attorneys’ fees, costs of court and such other and further relief. She is represented by Alfonso Kennard Jr. of Kennard Richard PC in Houston.
