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 greeter at Wal-Mart in Durango was fired for clocking in late after lunches without proper representation.

Supporters say Matt Wood deserves a second chance because of his disabilities. They say his wife should have been notified about the problems because she is his representative and is best suited to eliminate any distractions causing unwanted behavior.

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