I currently work at a car dealership for Chevrolet which runs a church sponsored purchase program. This program sells around 25-30 cars a month.I am a Muslim and I have been excluded from participating in this program and I am not allowed to sell any of these people a car. I was told it's a conflict of interest. Should I Sue?
Ha! Trump times . . . I think this is prohibited conduct, so yes, you should sue. Given the mood in the country it would not be a slam dunk winner (in fact, you could lose), but I, for one, would not hesitate to bring such a law suit, as a matter of principle. And also out of pure spite. Just imagine what would newspapers say.
Let's see what my colleagues say, does it make sense to sue under Title VII? Anything else I am missing?
I would suggest contacting the Department of Human Rights or employment counsel.
