On Wednesday the EEOC announced the filing of two separate religious discrimination lawsuits.  One suit (press release) was brought against the Sacramento, California-based supermarket chain Raley’s for refusing to continue accommodating the religious needs of a Jehovah’s Witness employee. The employee was fired after insisting that she needed to attend religious meetings on Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons.In a second suit (press release), the EEOC sued  the Florida-based Publix Supermarket chain for refusing to accommodate a Ratafarian new hire’s religious need to wear his hair in dreadlocks.
