EEOC Sues Dunkin' Donuts Over Refusal To Hire Seventh Day Adventist

The EEOC yesterday filed a religious discrimination lawsuit against a Dunkin' Donuts franchise in Ashville, North Carolina. The company withdrew its offer to hire Darrell Littrell as a donut maker when he refused to begin work on Friday evening because of his Seventh Day Adventist feligious beliefs. The EEOC's announcement also indicated that the company was charged with failing to preserve required employment records.
