A spokesperson for the nation’s largest retailer said that the company had reviewed the circumstances surrounding Wood’s termination and would offer him his old job back.

Earlier this month, a Michigan Walmart fired an employee who became involved in an altercation in its parking lot after he attempted to help a woman who he believed was being assaulted.

In September, 21 Walmart employees in Los Angeles were arrested at a protest demanding higher wages and an end to worker firings. The protest was part of a national campaign that held events in 15 cities against the retailer.
