Maita Chevrolet dealership sued for religious discrimination

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has filed a religious discrimination lawsuit against Elk Grove, California car dealership Maita Chevrolet.

The EEOC claims that Anthony Okon, a Nigerian immigrant and a Seventh-Day Adventist, was harassed, disciplined and fired because of his inability to work on the Sabbath.

Okon said, “It is a terrible thing to be asked to choose between practicing your faith and supporting your family.  I was recognized for my customer service and teamwork, and I was willing to work any other time.  No matter how I tried to explain my religion, the company told me that they could make no exceptions.”
