Who knew, when you have a job, you’re expected to do it?
Back in 2015, Muslim flight attendant Charee Stanley says she was suspended by ExpressJet for refusing to serve alcohol in accordance with her Islamic faith.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Michigan chapter announced Tuesday they were suing the ExpressJet for Charee Stanley, a Muslim woman and flight attendant out of Detroit, according to the Associated Press.
The federal court case follows a discrimination complaint filed last year with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which dismissed it without determining whether the airline violated the law.
Stanley alleges ExpressJet didn’t provide a reasonable religious accommodation and seeks back pay and other damages. She was placed on unpaid leave last summer.
ExpressJet said in a statement that it valued diversity, but that it could not comment on Stanley’s specific case.
