Philadelphia Daily News on Friday reported on an employment discrimination lawsuit filed in federal court in Pennsylvania by a Muslim man who was fired from his job as a truck driver because he refused to transport a shipment of Miller Lite beer. Plaintiff Vasant Reddy claims that when he was hired, Schneider National, Inc. told him they could accommodate his religious objections to transporting alcohol or tobacco. However two days after Reddy refused to transport a shipment of alcohol, he was told to resign or be fired. Reddy’s attorney claims that accommodation would not be difficult because less than 5% of Schneider National’s shipments are of alcoholic beverages.
