Alexander Godelman and Marc Le Shay, two Diskeeper employees (Godelman was CIO and Le Shay hired as the Automation Planning Officer) have filed a complaint in the Los Angeles Superior Court alleging that Scientology training was a condition of employment and that their refusal to participate led to their dismissal. According to the complaint, “{t]he working conditions and work environment at DISKEEPER were inextricably intertwined with the Scientology religion such that a non-Scientologist cannot escape constant impositions of said religion.”

via reality based community – scott pilutik: Former CIO sues Diskeeper claims he was fired for not participating in Scientology training.

I hope their suit goes somewhere.  I personally think work is not the place for religious practices (unless, or course you work for a religion based institution) and that what is happening here violates several laws.
