Good evening and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
If your fiance's employer has 15 or more employees, she is entitled to "reasonable accommodations" for her religious practices. This does not mean she would be entitled to all of Sunday off, but rather only enough time off so that she can attend church services. Furthermore, this would only be required of her employer if it does not impose "undue hardship" on the company. Since she is a supervisor, it is possible that her attendance and work on Sundays is critical to the functioning of the company, and if that is the case, accommodating her need to attend religious services might be an undue hardship. Ultimately, there is a factual question here which can only be resolved by a jury at a trial, so it is impossible to predict whether a claim would succeed with any degree of certainty. Still, the first step in pursuing such a claim would be to file a complaint with the EEOC, which you can do here.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
