Hollywood, FL asked in Employment Law for Virginia

Q: What can we do about this situation???

My wife works for Wal-Mart corp. She took a transfer from one store in Boynton Beach FL to Dublin, Va. Her start date was yesterday and when she went in they stated that she couldn't start because of a background check. She has been working for the corporation for over three years and already had a background check done. Right now, she's calling and waiting instead of working and using her PTO and personal time. She doesn't have enough to keep going like this and we need her check along with mine to live off of. What can we do here, if she runs out of her time they will end up giving her points and firing her?

A: Do you think it has something to do with discrimination? Why did they do a background check again after the transfer?
