Federal officials claim AutoZone illegally fired an Everett worker who converted to Sikhism – and did little to stop supervisors and customers from calling the man “bin Laden” and “terrorist” once he began wearing a turban.

 

The U.S. Equal Opportunity Employment Commission yesterday sued Memphis-based AutoZone on behalf of Frank Mahoney Burroughs, a salesman allegedly fired after some three years working at the chain’s Everett store.
