The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has filed a religious discrimination lawsuit against Miami chiropractor company Dynamic Medical Services, Inc.
The EEOC claims that Dynamic Medical Services, which is owned by Dr. Dennis Nobbe, subjected a number of its employees to a hostile work environment by requiring them to spend at least half of their work days in Scientology religious courses.
According to the EEOC, the employees were required to do things such as “screaming at ashtrays or staring at someone for eight hours without moving,” and one employee was required to undergo a “purification” treatment at the Church of Scientology.
Dynamic Medical Services allegedly fired employees who refused to participate in Scientology religious practices and/or did not conform to Scientology religious beliefs.
EEOC attorney Robert Weisberg said, “Employees’ freedom from religious coercion at the workplace must be protected. These actions are a shameful violation of federal law.”
