End Religious Discrimination with Qualified Help!
Religious discrimination can result in the mistreatment of employees in the workplace. For instance, a worker can find himself or herself being subjected to intolerance, harassment, physical abuse, lost opportunities and much more. When an employer allows this type of conduct to occur, an employee has the right to fight back and protect their legal interests.
EEOC v. Imperial Security Inc.
In a lawsuit headed by the EEOC, female employees are trying to get justice for the religious discrimination that is transpiring within their organization. The federal agency is accusing the employer of violating Title VII. For instance, one of the plaintiffs was fired for wear a khimar that covered her hair, neck and ears. The ex-employee claims that the employer made her take it off while working.
The employer’s policy is to forbid alterations to their uniforms, even if it is for religious purposes. The class-action lawsuit fights this type of religious discrimination head on, so that other workers can be treated in a fair and unbiased manner.
