Q. A co-worker, through text messages, stated my belief as a Jehovah's Witness was "ridiculous" what should I do?
A: The most important question here is was this an isolated incident, or this one part of a larger pattern? While this is not the exemplary behavior we’d expect of a person in a supervisory role, if it’s an isolated comment, it’s not necessarily illegal. To be considered religious discrimination in the workplace, the treatment would generally need to be repeated or severe. Reach out to an experienced religious discrimination attorney if this treatment continues or gets worse.
Q. If my employer allows a student to enroll on campus, despite my reported assault incident, can I sue my employer?
A: You did the right thing in reporting the incident to management. However, the school does not have to honor your request not to re-enroll the offending student. If they do re-enroll the student more information is needed. Is your employer taking steps to keep you out of harm’s way despite re-enrolling this student? For instance, if the student is enrolled remotely, it seems unlikely they could threaten physical harm to you. However, if the school accepts the student and allows them within close proximity of you, this may show a failure of the school to protect its employees from a known threat. Schedule a consultation with an employment attorney to discuss the details of your case and to review legal options.
Q. Can an employer require you to speak English at all times even during private conversations among coworkers?
A: An English-only policy is illegal unless it is enacted for the safety of employees and customers. If such a policy applies to conversations outside of customer interactions as you describe, you may have a case for discrimination on the basis of national-origin. Schedule an appointment with an experienced discrimination attorney who offers free consultations to discuss your legal options.
