A North Carolina Walmart location is alleged to have violated federal law when it refused to excuse an employee’s disability-related leave and discharged her for violating the company’s attendance policy, a lawsuit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission claimed Tuesday.

The suit stated that a Statesville Walmart refused to provide a reasonable accommodation to a deli associate who was suffering from symptoms related to Crohn’s disease. The associate requested intermittent leave or excused disability-related absences and requested to be transferred to a position closer to a bathroom.
