In Sturgill v. United Parcel Serv., Inc., the plaintiff's religious beliefs kept him from working between sundown on Fridays and sundown on Saturdays. UPS fired him because he refused to complete his route at these times. While other federal Courts of Appeals have required employers to accommodate the employee by eliminating the work conflict, the Eighth Circuit ruled that employers and employees should work together to accommodate both the employee's strongly held religious beliefs and work demands. The Eighth Circuit (St. Louis) upheld a jury award of $ 104,000 due to religious discrimination, but eliminated punitive damages because it found that UPS had not acted recklessly in refusing the religious accommodation.
