Equal Opportunity Employment Comm'n v. WC&M Enters., Inc., 05-21090

In a case involving Muslim employee's allegations of a hostile work environment at a car dealership, summary judgment for defendant-employer is reversed as: 1) the employee's EEOC charge was timely; 2) the EEOC submitted sufficient evidence to support its claim that the employee was subjected to a hostile work environment both on the basis of religion and on the basis of national origin; and 3) the district court erred in concluding that the EEOC could not recover for any mental anguish that the employee suffered.
