The plaintiff was issued suspensions for refusing to work Sundays. She regularly asked off on Sundays because she had religious requirements that prevented her from working. Her supervisor explained that if she asked off every Sunday, they would be short staffed, and explained that every employee got one Sunday off every four weeks. The EEOC found that the employee’s religious beliefs were bona fide and that the employer did not do enough to accommodate her inability to work Sundays in violation of Title VII. Thus, the EEOC ordered the agency to provide her with a religious accommodation, restore any leave that she had used to avoid working Sundays, and expunge her record of the suspensions.
