Posted on 09/03/2015 4:32:51 AM PDT by lowbridge
A Muslim flightattendant has filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEO) claiming she was suspended from her job for not serving alcohol which is against her religious beliefs.
Lena Masri, an attorney for the Council of American Islamic Relations Michigan (CAIR), says Charee Stanley followed managements directions, working out an arrangement with her coworkers to accommodate passenger requests for alcohol.
However, Masri said, ExpressJet Airlines put Stanley on administrative leave after another attendant filed an Islamophobic complaint that referenced Stanleys head scarf.
We notified ExpressJet Airlines of its obligation under the law to reasonably accommodate Ms. Stanleys religious beliefs, Masri said at a news conference in Farmington Hills on Tuesday.
Instead, ExpressJet close to violate Ms. Stanelys constitutional rights, placed her on administrative leave for 12 months after which her employment may be administratively terminated.
Masri said the arrangement Stanley had with other attendants to serve the alcohol for her had been working out just fine since Stanley converted to Islam about a month after becoming a flight attendant for ExpressJet.

More muslim initiated refuse.
Won’t serve Christians, Jews, and atheists.
Nothing to see here. Justice Department is okay with that.
She knew serving was part of her job. If she didnt want to do her job she should have quit.
She converted to Islam after accepting the job.
I saw a press conference with CAIR and the employee making the allegations...I think some of these people are seeking out employment where they know they can get away with it. The woman claiming to be a Muslim is probably a scam artist and is part of a nationwide network of scam artists posing as Muslims who exploit political correctness to their own advantage and for personal financial gain.
So she was well aware of the job requirements.
Islam is a cult of obsessive compulsive behaviors.
Muslims RUIN everything they touch!!
Leftists can’t have it both ways.
She doesn’t have a constitutional right to a job that she feels her religion prevents her from doing. If she won’t do the work then find another career.
Chill out,sweetie.Have a pork chop....you’ll feel much better.
She used to work in a pet shop but refused to be around dogs. I understand she has applied to Hormel for her next job.
The alcohol is in bottles, she never has to touch it. Given her logic she should never get on the plane because it has alcohol in it. Taking that logic further she should leave America because it has alcohol in it.
If they win this case, then people can refuse to issue marriage lic. to gays on religious beliefs.
Like a certain Kentucky clerk who is being demonized as a hypocrite by the left because she did not follow Christian religious principles before she became a Christian?
I just found (by accident) a Halal grocery store.
Think I’m gonna go in a demand they sell me some pork chops.
“If they win this case, then people can refuse to issue marriage lic. to gays on religious beliefs.”
The stupid tw(i)t hasn’t got a leg to stand on, since stewardesses have been serving food, snacks and all sorts of drink for over 44 years!!!
She had to know that, BEFORE she applied for the job.
