Company's faith-based holiday policy doesn't fly
Oct 16, 2016 7:15 AM - Q: My daughter works for a car dealership that employs 19 people. The owner, an Orthodox Jew, gives every employee two paid holidays a year: Thanksgiving and Christmas. He personally observes every major Jewish holiday and insists his five Jewish employees take those days off with pay. This does not seem good policy, but is it illegal discrimination based on religion?
