(Family Status)

C.D. worked weekdays so that she could be free on evenings and weekends to take care of her disabled grandson. She was the only source of support for her grandson and, due to his unique needs, was the only person capable of caring for him. Wal-Mart changed her hours of work, requiring her to work evenings and weekends. Wal-Mart reduced her hours when she refused, bringing her under the benefits threshold.

The Tribunal ordered:

  • The Respondent to allow C.D. to work specific times on weekdays when she is not required to attend to the unique needs of her family member.
