Lawsuit: Macy's Worker Fired over Catholic Faith

Javier Chavez loved his job at Macy’s.

The devout Roman Catholic was hired in 1990 as a door guard. A few years later he was promoted to store detective – and he eventually became a senior store detective at the department store’s location in Flushing, Queens.

But after more than 26 years on the job, Mr. Chavez was fired – allegedly over an incident involving a man who identifies as a woman using the ladies room.

Mr. Chavez has filed an official complaint with the New York State Division of Human Rights claiming he was terminated because of his religious beliefs.
