Told To Stop Saying 'God Bless You' To Drivers, Toll Collector Quits Her Job And Sues Bosses

Posted in: ,

Cynthia Fernandez, a toll collector, has quit her job last week after being told by her manager not to say “God bless you” to drivers. She has also gotten herself a lawyer to sue her employers.

Do you think she has a justifiable reason to sue? I think the manager has a point, and then it's not like they asked her to quit.

Her lawyer, Greg Noble, says;

By saying 'God bless you,' she's expressing herself as a Christian. And if an employer is going to restrain her ability to express herself in that way, not say something based on her religious belief, not disrupting the workplace, that's our concern.'

On her own, the woman explained why she quit.

'As they leave, I said, 'Have a good day, God bless you,'

He told me he wanted to talk to me, that I couldn't say, 'God bless you,' anymore to customers because somebody might get offended,

It does say, 'Provide customer service, smile' – it does say all that, but it does not say in any line, 'Do not say, 'God bless you.'

Ms Fernandez says she feels like she’s taking a stand for God.

She is seeking back pay with benefits and a cash settlement from the authority.
