Goldsboro-based construction company T.A. Loving faces EEOC religious discrimination charges after the company fired several Seventh-day Adventist workers because they refused to work on their Sabbath.
Seventh-day Adventists follow the Old Testament Sabbath, which begins at sundown on Friday and runs until sundown on Saturday.
The EEOC alleges the company knew of the workers’ religious practices when it hired them in 2007, yet it refused to accommodate them.
The EEOC suit, filed in federal court, alleged violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
