Question: Ortega, an employee of ABC Inc. recently


Ortega, an employee of ABC Inc. recently joined a church that forbids working on Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays. Ortega requested that his employer change his work schedule from eight-hour days, Monday through Friday, to ten-hour days, Tuesday through Friday. Ortega’s request was refused because the employer is in operation only eight hours per day, five days a week. After a month during which Ortega failed to work on Mondays, he was fired. The employer stated that “only a full-time employee would be acceptable” for Ortega’s position. What are Ortega’s legal rights, if any?
