Ruling upheld for "disloyal" fired cashier

Superior Court judge agrees cashier made inappropriate price comparison

A ruling upheld by a Superior Court judge may have cashiers second-guessing their small talk with customers.

The judge recently upheld an arbitrator's ruling to fire a Provigo store cashier in Saint-Michel-des-Saints after the employee told a customer that was checking out that some of the products he was buying were cheaper at Walmart.

The cashier, Nancy Beaulieu, an 18-year employee, was fired in 2013 for her actions.

In 2014, an arbitrator upheld the firing, saying Beaulieu had shown "disloyalty." The matter subsequently ended up in the Superior Court. Again, the firing was upheld there. The judge said that Beaulieu's unapproved behavior was "unthinkable."
