Sample Letter for Verbal Dismissal
City, State, Zip Code
RE: Name of Member
On (date), I was informed orally by (name) that I was not to return to work because I would not work on the Sabbath, which I observe from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown. I requested a written notice, but it was not given to me. Since I received nothing in writing I returned to work on (date), and (date), but was prevented from going to work by (name).
I lieu of a written notice but in harmony with the oral statement, I shall assume that I was dismissed because of my religious observance and practice.
