    After being diagnosed with Cancer, going through hours of surgery and having the necessary Chemo Treatments that were needed a Employee of STAPLES (STAPLES CONTRACT and COMMERCIAL DIVISION) returned to work only to be told by the employer that they "WOULD NOT" allow the "FEW HOURS" off that would be needed to complete the remaining 2 Chemo Treatments, stating that "The Employee would have to go back on disability to have the time that was needed for the remaining 2 Chemo Treatments." After being FORCED to go back on disability, completing the remaining Chemo Treatments and 1 Final Surgery, preparing to return to work with a "Clean Bill of Health", looking forward to finally getting back to a normal healthy productive life, STAPLES FIRES THE EMPLOYEE for "EXCEEDING THE TIME ALLOWED OFF ACCORDING TO STAPLES COMPANY POLICY." As though the Battle with the Cancer and Mental Stress wasn't enough to deal with. The STAPLES MOTTO should be changed to..."STAPLES...BALLS...Yeah, WE'VE GOT THAT."
