    UPS to pay $70K to settle religious discrimination suit - Atlanta Business Chronicle

    Atlanta-based United Parcel Service, Inc. has agreed to pay $70,000 to settle a religious discrimination suit filed by a former employee and Jehovah’s Witness, who said the company would not change his schedule to allow him to attend an annual religious service, according to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

    The EEOC contends the refusal to grant the request for a schedule accommodation and the decision to terminate the claimant constituted religious discrimination.

    Maybe I'm due some money. I've missed many a Christmas Eve services due to the company's unwillingness to change my schedule to allow me to attend.
