Little Rock, AR asked in Employment Discrimination and Employment Law for Arkansas

Q: Wrongful Termination (Arkansas)?

I have a serious injury (not work related) that has caused me to miss several days of work. I have had several ER visits for pain, Dr visits working on fixing the issue, and days where I simply could not move. That said, I understand missing excessive time is wrong. Where I don't agree/understand is, There are other employees that have missed as much or more time and still have their job. There are several instances of no call/no show, employees that literally missed months on a drug binge and walked back in, etc. Is this not wrongful termination based on unequal treatment?
