Tell bosses: Accommodation backlash can be retaliation

by on
in Employment Law,Human Resources

One of the most common mistakes employers make is allowing bosses to subtly retaliate. Take, for example, an employee who asks for a religious accommodation. If the request is approved, it may cause scheduling difficulties. Some supervisors may be tempted to get back at the employee for the hassle the accommodations are causing. Don’t let them.

Recent case: Yassim Mohamed worked for a hospital and needed to leave an hour early every Friday to attend Muslim prayer services. He requested permission to use his leave and the request was approved.

Then his supervisor assigned him to a different location and added job responsibilities. Eventually, he was fired.

He then sued, alleging retaliation for requesting the religious accommodation. The court said his case could go to trial. (Mohamed v. Public Health Trust of Miami-Dade, No. 09-21235, SD FL, 2010)
