(DALLASNEWS) — A woman is suing Dallas County after she says her job offer with the sheriff’s office was rescinded after she told her would-be employers she was an Orthodox Jew and would need to leave work early on Fridays for the Sabbath.
Isabel Balderas filed her suit Wednesday in district court. She’s seeking between $100,000 and $1 million in damages.
“The thing is they didn’t even want to talk to the lady about different options,” said Robert Lee, Balderas’ attorney. “She was willing to do all kinds of things. She said ‘I’ll work extra days, I’m only asking for this little thing.’ They gave her no slack.”
