EEOC sues on behalf of fired worker who wanted Sundays off

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A healthcare corporation faces a civil rights lawsuit filed on behalf of a former employee who wanted to observe a Sunday Sabbath.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission says Cardinal Health
failed to accommodate Howard Thompson's religious beliefs by making
him work on Sundays.

Thompson was a driver at a Cardinal facility in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In its federal lawsuit, the EEOC says the company wrongly fired Thompson after refusing to modify his work schedule so he could
observe Sunday as a Sabbath day.
