Mormon Car Salesman Sues Claiming Religious Harassment By Employer
Arkansas Online reported yesterday on a religious discrimination lawsuit filed by a former auto salesman against a Fort Smith, Arkansas Ford dealership. Richard Black says that about two weeks after he began working for Randall Ford, the used car manager began to question him intrusively about his religious beliefs. He particularly harassed him about his religious undergarments. Black also complained that he was told to lie to customers about prices and deals in order to sell vehicles. After 7 months he was fired, being told he did not fit in. The suit was filed in state court in June and removed to federal court last week.
