CAIR Chicago Attends Employment Discrimination Interview

CAIR-Chicago PILI Fellow Elisa Jillson attended an interview with the Illinois Department of Human Rights (IDHR) regarding a Muslim man alleging discrimination by a local department store.The man was terminated for not showing up for work, although he had given notice to his manager the day prior. The man had requested the day off to celebrate the Muslim holiday of Eid. Although his manager had given him permission to take the day off to attend prayer services, the man was written up the next day and terminated. CAIR-Chicago will continue to represent the man and seek a just and positive resolution.
