EEOC Sues Over Refusing To Accommodate Jewish Employee's Holiday Observance

The EEOC announced on Tuesday that it has filed a Title VII lawsuit against XPO Last Mile, Inc., a delivery company, for rescinding a job offer to Tzvi McCloud who refused to report for his first day of work on Rosh Hashanah.  A company vice president allegedly told McCloud that if he gave him a religious accommodation for his Jewish religious beliefs, he would have to extend accommodations to other employees as well.
