CAIR-Chicago Attorney Kevin Vodak Settles Case after man is unjustly fired

Feature 318CAIR-Chicago Staff Attorney Kevin Vodak settled a case of employment discrimination on behalf of a man who believed he was terminated from his job because he is Muslim.

The man began receiving excessive warnings and was eventually terminated after he requested time on Friday afternoons to attend Muslim congregational prayer services.

CAIR-Chicago represented the man throughout the EEOC process, and later filed a lawsuit on his behalf in federal court. The case was recently settled, and the lawsuit voluntarily dismissed.
