One of the harsh realities in the workplace is that there are some who just don’t follow the rules. That’s one of the reasons for people getting fired, but there are sometimes higher things at stake than just a livelihood.
A Kennesaw security guard is relearning that lesson. He took a job at FedEx as a security guard. His army record made him the perfect fit for the position, as he knows how to take care of issues when trouble comes up. FedEx has a ‘gun-free work zone’ which the security guard upheld.
Unfortunately, someone else decided that they wanted to go against the rules. They brought a gun to the workplace, and, through the course of doing his job, the security guard was seriously injured. Seriously injured to the point where he’s had to have 30 surgeries to fix the issues. The security guard, Chris Sparkman, was first to be injured, but in so doing was able to care for the many people who he was sworn to protect.
As a result of the serious monetary setback that the Sparkman family has incurred because of the shooting, the family is suing his employer for an undisclosed amount.
