HAZARD, Ky. (WKYT) - An eastern Kentucky man has filed a lawsuit against Hampton Inn and his boss after he says he was punished for not undergoing an exorcism.

The lawsuit was filed in Perry Circuit Court in March, and the plaintiff is Jason Fields of Leslie County. The defendants are Hampton Inn, Employee Resource Group and Sharon Lindon.

Fields states in the lawsuit he started working at Hampton Inn as a front desk employee beginning in 2016. Sharon Lindon, his manager, learned Fields was going through a divorce and believed his marital problems were because he had demons.

Lindon is accused of telling Fields he had to get cleansed in order to keep working at the hotel. Lindon gave Fields a questionnaire with many questions about religion and intimate activities. Fields said in the Lawsuit he was asked to return it to Lindon before undergoing an exorcism.

...


The whole complaint including the questionnaire is included in the article.

1. Guess I would have been fired too

I go to church, but it's the "wrong" church, so would need to be exorcised.

I'm sure this would fall under that whole freedom of religion thingy.

3. This is giving me an idea

Billboards in Kentucky that say "Mitch McConnell has demons!"

I wonder what would happen...

5. Large companies like Hampton Inn using have a Hotline

that can be called for issues like this one. I don't know if that is the case, but if there was a hotline, then it incumbent on him to call it.

9. I can't begin to process this madness - an employer ordered an employee to be exorcised?

Unemployment would be a better option - good effin' grief these people are mad.

I will never ever stay at a Hampton Inn

10. It's not the hotel chain's fault if they didn't know

The plaintiff said he wanted to contact the owner and the manager forbade him to on threat of firing.

Hampton is part of the Hilton chain. I bet this manager is about to lose her job.

11. Looks like the plaintiff doesn't know his own rights

I would have contacted the Chain. No employer could tell me that shit.
