Staff Attorney Represents Muslim Corrections Officer Discriminated Against at Work

CAIR-Chicago Staff Attorney Kevin Vodak attended a status hearing for a Muslim man who suffered from discrimination at work. The Muslim man had been working as a corrections officer with the Cook County Sheriff’s Department since 2003. The man was consistently harassed and subjected to derogatory comments about his religion and ethnicity. He had also been involved in a work related injury where his workers compensation was denied after a month. Depositions are scheduled to being in early September and CAIR-Chicago will continue to represent the officer. Copyright © 2008 CAIR-Chicago
