Arcadia woman says refusal to learn Scientology got her fired in Pasadena - 2015-12-09
An Arcadia woman is suing her former employer, alleging she was fired for refusing to participate in mandatory on-the-job Scientology classes.
Annie R. Lee's lawsuit against Pasadena-based Lusida Rubber Products Inc. and two company executives, Wayne Chin and William Johonnesson, alleges wrongful termination, religious discrimination, failure to prevent religious discrimination, harassment and retaliation.
Lee seeks unspecified damages and an injunction enjoining Lusida from requiring employees to take Scientology lessons.
Chin said today he may have a comment later after he reviews the lawsuit, which was filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
