Big Brother Is Watching You How many miles away from your store, is safe? Big Brother may be watching you. If someone just does not like another associate and can find someone to back up an allegation true or not it can cause an associate to be terminated. Termination due to Gross Misconduct is something that can be used to rid a store of anyone for any reason as long as someone backs the allegation. You can say a bad word in California, or not, if you work in Jersey and if someone knows you work for Walmart and turns you in you can be terminated.
