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.
