Muslim Flight Attendant Suspended For Refusing To Serve Alcohol (Video)

A Muslim flight attendant for ExpressJet says she was wrongly suspended from her job last month because she refused to serve alcohol to passengers, citing her religious beliefs.

40 year old Charee Stanley filed a discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on Tuesday for the revocation of a reasonable religious accommodation.

Stanley has worked for Expressjet nearly three years ago. She converted to Islam two years ago. She says this year she learned her faith prohibits her from not only consuming alcohol, but serving it too.

She and the airline did work out an agreement for two months, until she says one of her co-workers filed a complaint against her saying “She was not fulfilling her duties as a flight attendant by refusing to serve alcohol.”

Four weeks alter, Stanley’s “religious accommodation” excluding her from serving alcohol was revoked by the airline. They also placed her on administrative leave.

A spokesperson for Expressjet declined to discuss Stanley’s complaint, but in a statement to CNN said, quote: “… We embrace and respect the values of all of our team members. We are an equal opportunity employer with a long history of diversity in our workforce.”

The flight attendant who filed the motion against Stanley also complained about her headdress and a book she had at work.

Stanley’s attorney says she’s now on unpaid leave and may lose her job in 12 months.
