A Michigan man who was fired by Walmart after he defended a woman who was attacked in a Hartland store’s parking lot in his meal break had been offered his job back, the company said on Friday.
Kristopher Oswald, 30, had been dismissed last week for violating company policy, spokeswoman Brooke Buchanan said. “The protocol is when you see something, you alert store management and call the police. That’s for the safety of our associates so they don’t get into a situation that may be dangerous.”
Walmart said media coverage prompted its corporate office to review the security footage and police report.
It said it had not heard from Oswald about the offer. Oswald, a temporary employee, did not respond to requests for comment. – Reuters
