National auto parts distributor AutoZone, Inc. is in hot water:
“I spent more time with AutoZone staff than with my own family and friends,” said MahoneyBurroughs. “It was very painful to be humiliated and insulted by them. They made me feel as though I had no right to practice my faith. When I complained, I was discarded like a piece of trash. I don’t want AutoZone to do this to anyone else.”
The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is suing AutoZone for the treatment that employee Frank MahoneyBurroughs received by employees (and customers) of one of its stores after he converted to Sikhism and began wearing a turban.
