Written by

A local aviation company has been sued in federal court after it allegedly fired an employee, who is a member of the Jehovah's Witnesses, for refusing to raise flags outside the company's Barrigada office.

The lawsuit against Aviation Concepts Inc. was filed in the District Court of Guam on Friday. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued a press release yesterday.

The EEOC represents Armando Perez, who worked as a mechanic at Aviation Concepts until June 2010.

According to the lawsuit, Perez was allegedly fired last summer after he refused to raise American and Guam flags outside of the Aviation Concepts office. Jehovah's Witnesses are forbidden from raising flags, which is deemed as sacrilegious.
