DURANGO, Colo. (AP) Wal-Mart officials are checking out complaints that a man who suffered a brain injury in 2005 and has been working as a Wal-Mart greeter in Colorado was fired for clocking in late after lunches without proper representation.

Supporters say Matt Wood deserves a second chance at the Durango store because of his disabilities. They say his wife should've been notified because she is his representative and is best-suited to help him address any problems.

Store spokeswoman Kayla Whaling tells the Durango Herald the corporation takes these cases very seriously and it is looking into the situation.
