A Muslim flight attendant claims she was suspended from her job for refusing to serve alcohol, which is against her religious beliefs.
Charee Stanley, who has been an employee at ExpressJet for three years and converted to Islam a year ago, says she was suspended from the airline in August after another steward complained.
Stanley says she has now filed a discrimination complaint against the carrier, saying they are required to make ‘reasonable accommodation’ of her beliefs.
That attendant and Stanley’s other colleagues had been filling any alcohol requests Stanley received after she approached her boss about her religious objection to serving booze in early June. But now Stanley may lose her job following the 12-month suspension, according to the organization.
