SHARE Woman says ex-employer fired her over religion

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A television producer's lawsuit says her former employer fired her after she complained about the company including scriptures inside paycheck envelopes and promoting Bible study at the office.

In the lawsuit filed Tuesday, Rozanne Sonneborn also alleged WJMK Television Productions president Mark Kielar withheld two weeks severance pay because she wouldn't drop a complaint of religious discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

WJMK attorney Joe Curley said Sonneborn was fired last year because of the sluggish economy.
