The courts are being called upon to consider the right of an individual to worship harmoniously with his conscience. Darrell Littrell objected to his employer, Citi Brands, LLC, in the guise of Dunkin’ Donuts, making him work against his stated wishes that he observe his faith’s Sabbaths. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has filed charges against Citi.

In my experience, one tells his employer he observes Sabbaths, the employer says fine and then puts the worker on the schedule for the day he requests off, or makes him work overtime into his holy day. It’s always an ox in the mire, so the believer has compassion on the boss, and so it goes.
