Wal-Mart Executives Fired For 'Failing To Follow' Rules

"More details emerged Wednesday after Bentonville-based Wal-Mart Stores Inc. confirmed that it dumped several executives.

Earlier Wednesday, the company would not say why it decided on the firings of seven employees. The firings were made public in various media reports on Wednesday morning.

However, 40/29's Mike McCormick learned later in the day that three executives were fired and four non-executive workers were terminated for what Wal-Mart spokeswoman Mona Williams called 'failing to follow internal company rules.'

Williams stated that the terminations occurred over the past several days. The company's chief spokeswoman cited privacy issues and would not name the executives, nor would she give the reasons they were terminated."

No truth to the rumor that two of the execs were fired for engaging in nondiscriminatory behavior toward their female employees and the other was caught offering decent health benefits to his employees.
