EEOC Complaint Alleges Failure To Accommodate Muslim Flight Attendant

According to Michigan Radio, a complaint was filed this week with the EEOC by  Charee Stanley, a Muslim flight attendant now on unpaid leave from ExpressJet.  When Stanley converted to Islam two years ago, she arranged for fellow flight attendants to serve alcohol on her behalf.  However last month another employee filed a complaint that this arrangement required the employee to perform extra work. This led to the airline placing Stanley on leave. The same person allegedly made comments to Stanley about her head covering and expressed anti-Muslim sentiments to her. Stanley seeks reasonable accommodation of her religious beliefs.
