Walmart welcomes the "people's greetings" in stores across the nation.

Walmart officials have confirmed Wednesday that the authorities, many of them disabled, will replace "client hosts". The host, one of the world's largest retailers, is part of the program that started in 2015, invites customers to greet them, but adds more stringent and more stringent responsibilities.

"As long as we try to improve our customers' experience constantly, we have to adapt the roles from time to time," said Walmart to the United States. "We have recently shared our plans to respond to people's greetings role in some stores and members with disabilities in such cases."

Associated press reports reported to affected members that last week the posts should be expelled on April 26 on April 26 in their host roles. In order to be a host, they need to have 25-pack packages to climb up stairs and stand for long-term stands.

Walmart said the associate associated with physical disabilities is a "special situation".

"To do this, we will open a transitional period of 60 days of current partners for organizations with disabilities, situations and potential accommodation, for each individual, which can be made within each of the stores," said Walmart in its statement.

React face to face

Walmart founder Sam Walton welcomed in the early 1980s.

In 2015, Walmart began a pilot program for clients' clients, which opened in May 2016 business blog post. The host "customer is welcome", but checks that when receipts are good, it helps translate and keep tickets clean and safe, "Walmart described in the blog.

In all countries, customers have begun to gather around some of the old workers.

Marion, North Carolina, began an online application to keep Jay Melton in his 17-year-old job. Melton has cerebral palsy and can not help without any help, according to the demand of more than 14,600 signatures.

"Jay's disabilities will not allow" many host responses to the host, request notes. "This means that he will soon lose his job as a result of changes."

Holly Catlin has published a public Facebook post about the son of Adam Caltin, who has cerebral palsy and has been greeted by Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania and Walmart for nine years. It was published on February 18, nearly 10,000 times, and is about 4,000 comments.

"Everyone knows that he loves his work and does not love him. He looks at you and your family, especially your kiddos. You all know that you know," Holly Catlin wrote. "He talks to his ears when he speaks to his colleagues and management. They are their family in their eyes".

Walmart's changes have called for at least three complaints from the United States Employment Commission and the United States' anti-discrimination law. According to the federal law, the employer must be "reasonably" accommodated for disabled workers.

Walmart officials said that over 80,000 and 80% of all affected agents had found other roles in Walmart after the greetings were sent over 1,000 stores in 2016.

Walmart gave the company a 60-day period to buy other jobs, but the company has extended the temporary deadline for people with disabilities.

"This allows these associations to continue their work in the store, because they value the members of the group, while trying to find a personalized and personalized solution to all those involved," said the company in its statement.
