Suit Claims Employer Required Watching of Scientology Based Videos

Yesterday's Las Vegas Review-Journal reported on an employment discrimination lawsuit filed April 26 against Real Water, a water bottling company owned by a member of the Nevada legislature.  Former "brand ambassador" Grecia Echevarria-Hernandez, a Catholic, alleged that company owner Brent Jones required her to watch self-improvement courses based on Scientology in order to qualify for raises or promotion.  She refused to do so.  Eventually she was fired. She claims this was because of her differing religious views.
