EEOC v. UPS (Religious Discrimination – Bartlett, TN)
In June 2009, UPS settled a religious discrimination lawsuit in which the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) alleged the company failed to accommodate the religious beliefs of one of its employees. UPS made the employee work past sundown on his Sabbath, which violated his tenets as a member of the United Church of God. UPS denied the EEOC’s allegations but agreed to pay $23,500 in damages to the employee.
