The New Jersey Supreme Court has ruled that a company retaliated against an employee when it fired her for taking confidential documents to bolster her lawsuit. The court ruled that the employee was protected in taking the documents without authorization because she was giving them to her attorney.
A federal court has ruled that an employee may pursue her religious discrimination claim against her employer. The employee argued that she could not follow company policy and receive a flu shot because it was against her religion, veganism. The court is allowing the case to proceed, ruling that the employee should be given the opportunity to prove that veganism meets the requirements of religious belief under discrimination statutes.
