Elsewhere in the Courts: Religious Discrimination

A federal appeals court has ruled that an employer did not discriminate against an employee who requested certain days and times off for religious observance. The company showed that it evaluated other positions within the company and alternative shifts but could not accommodate the employee because of seniority issues or union rules. (EEOC v. Firestone Fibers and Textiles, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, No. 06-2203, 2008)
