Man Discriminated Against at Work, CAIR-Chicago Attends Status Hearing

CAIR-Chicago Staff Attorney Tricia Kemling attended a status hearing on behalf of a Muslim man who filed a complaint of discrimination in federal district court. The man was a correctional officer hired by the Cook County Sheriff’s Department in 2003 and began receiving harassing phone calls with derogatory statements towards his national origin on several occasions.

CAIR-Chicago will continue to represent the man in his employment discrimination complaint and will work to attain a just and positive resolution.
