EEOC Sues Over Religious Objections To Flu Shot

The EEOC announced last week that it has filed suit against Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, for requiring an employee of the contractor providing food and environmental services to have a flu shot if the employee wished to continue to work there. The employee refused on religious grounds.  In prior years accommodation was provided by allowing employees to wear a protective mask instead.
