Muslim manager springs lawsuit on Jack in the Box

A former manager of an East Texas Jack in the Box fast food restaurant is suing the chain for discrimination on the basis of national origin and religion.

Mohammed Sohail, a Muslim of Pakistani national origin, was the general manager at a McKinney Jack in the Box. He worked for Jack in the Box and its franchises for more than 20 years before he was transferred to the McKinney restaurant.

Sohail alleges that his supervisor at the new restaurant called him derogatory names—among them, “camel jockey”—behavior that continued even after he complained.

According to Sohail, his restaurant was improperly given a failing grade on an audit run by the supervisor because of unwarranted point deductions. He was later fired after failing a reinspection.

Sohail’s lawsuit against Jack in the Box Inc., alleges that the chain favors white, non-Muslim workers, retaliated against him for opposing discrimination and allowed a hostile work environment.

Note: Religious discrimination claims continue to rise, especially for Muslims. In the past 10 years, Muslims have filed more than 10,000 EEOC religious discrimination complaints. The commission processed 1,490 such claims in FY 2010, up from 697 in FY 2004.
