Star Transport of Morton, Illinois, is one of several trucking companies with similar names. The thing that makes them stand out from the rest is that they are being sued by the Obama Administration.
According to the EEOC, Star violated federal law by failing to accommodate the religious beliefs of their employees. Two Muslim employees had refused to drive trucks that were delivering alcohol, so the company terminated their employment.
Islam prohibits the drinking of alcohol, but there is no rule against transporting it. Still, a devout person has a perfect right to do so on religious grounds. He also has a right to seek other employment.
The employer should be equally empowered to fire anyone who refuses to do the job for which he was hired, but our government apparently doesn’t see it that way. They are attempting to force Star to reinstate the drivers with back pay.
