Religious housekeeper wins settlement


A lawsuit involving a religious housekeeper who was fired for refusing to work on Sundays was settled Dec. 10 just before going to trial in Grand Rapids, Mich. The settlement includes a formal written apology and an undisclosed sum of money to compensate the housekeeper, Wilma Prins, for lost wages and benefits.

“Wilma Prins is very happy that her former employer agreed to settle out of court,” said Christopher Gibbons, an attorney affiliated with the Rutherford Institute. “By choosing to settle, all parties now agree that failing to accommodate Wilma Prins’ Sabbath day religious requirements was wrong. Wilma decided to fight for her religious beliefs as a matter of principle and today her principles were vindicated.”

Prins, who will soon celebrate her 81st birthday, worked as a part-time housekeeper in the Sunset Manor nursing home for 20 years. On Aug. 23, 1993, she was fired for refusing to work on Sundays, her Sabbath day. The nursing home refused to accommodate her religious beliefs.
