National Tire and Battary to Pay $22,500 to Settle Religious Discrimination Lawsuit

     National Tire and Battery has reportedly agreed to pay $22,500 to settle a national origin and religious discrimination lawsuit that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission brought on behalf of one of NTB’s former employees.  The EEOC’s suit alleged that the employee was harassed by coworkers because of his religion and national origin by calling him “Taliban,” “al-Qaeda,” “bin Laden,” and “terrorist” and by accusing him of making bombs.  The allegations also assert that the former employee constantly complained to management about the harassment, but nothing was done to stop it.  National origin and religious discrimination violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  See EEOC and NTW, LLC d/b/a National Tire and Battery, No. 15-cv-1681 (N.D. Ill.).
