I am a former Customer Service Rep. for Barclay's Bank (an EU /
UK based company) and was illegally fired for hanging pictures of
Jesus Christ up at my private cubicle in the Wilmington, Delaware call
center. My position required no face to face customer contact and
religious, personal and inspirational material is permitted to be hung
in workers' cubicles.

I've taken the proper steps with the Delaware Department of Labor
("DOL") and the EEOC but I think media attention would be more
beneficial in this "culture battle" than simple litigation.

Apparently, some of my co-workers found these Renaissance art
depictions of Jesus Christ's crucifixion and resurrection "offensive"
and reported me to my superiors. I was fired for "insubordination"
[standing up for my civil rights, Title VII of Civil Rights Act of
1964, as amended ("Title VII")] after I respectfully declined to
remove the pictures. Company policy doesn't prohibit this material.

I was a model employee and was never placed on corrective action
or counseled for breaking policy in the past. In fact, I was
subjected to sexual harassment by several of my co-workers and handled
it with out giving the names of the culprits to my superiors. It was
agreed upon by me and my supervisor that a general e-mail be sent to
my team to remedy the situation.

I wasn't raised to make trouble but
this company pushed too hard and I'm not going to take it laying down.
This is a matter of principal to me and I believe that pursuing a
remedy to this matter is of the utmost importance to preserving
diversity in the work place. I'm humbly asking your attention to this
matter and I
hope to hear from your organization. I'm a proverbial David fighting
a global Giant and need as much help getting the message out as I can get.

I have pictures and a detailed explanation of events that are
available upon request.

Please e-mail me at christian.romansky@gmail.com or call me at 856.803.9253.

Sincerely,
Christian Romansky

This certainly doesn't sound fair, but as stated previously, this isn't the place to post about it, especially if it's media coverage you seek.

Whilst I am extremely sympatheticand saddened to hear of the way you have been treated, this review is not relevant to the category of Bank Accounts.
