However, if you have a feeling that something was not quite right about your termination, you may find an ally in the California court system.

EEOC complaint alleges religious discrimination at Amazon site

The workers in Amazon's facilities throughout North America are largely invisible to online shoppers in California. A new complaint received by the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission reveals that some workers allegedly face a hostile atmosphere on the job. The workers' rights group Muslim Advocates filed the complaint on behalf of three Muslim Somali women who claim to have suffered religious discrimination and retaliation.

Genetic information claims may be pursued by the EEOC

It is generally not possible for an employer to use a person's genetic information to make an employment decision. This is true whether the company is in California or any other state. Employment decisions could include choosing whether to hire someone, terminate an individual or promote someone. If an individual believes that his or her genetic information has been misused, he or she can file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

However, she claims that she had previously lived in Europe and traveled internationally many times in the past.
