We provide legal services to those suffering religious discrimination, regardless of your religious belief or affiliation. We especially seek those willing to advance the law by making a long term commitment to engaging in trials and appeals. This is known as “impact litigation” because it helps to change, and hopefully strengthen the law.

We can  also provide referrals. For more information, or to obtain help, click here.

RE: Name of Member

Dear (Name):

On (date), I was informed orally by (name) that I was not to return to work because I would not work on the Sabbath, which I observe from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown. I requested a written notice, but it was not given to me. Since I received nothing in writing I returned to work on (date), and (date), but was prevented from going to work by (name).

I lieu of a written notice but in harmony with the oral statement, I shall assume that I was dismissed because of my religious observance and practice.

Respectfully yours,

 

Your Name
