WOMAN FORCED TO RESIGN FOR SAYING “GOD BLESS YOU” TO CUSTOMER

A former Garden State Parkway toll collector has filed a lawsuit because she claims a supervisor told her to stop saying “God bless you” to motorists.


Cynthia Fernandez says her First Amendment rights were violated. The mother of three from Perth Amboy is seeking back pay with benefits and a cash settlement from the New Jersey Turnpike Authority.


Fernandez tells News 12 New Jersey she feels like she’s taking a stand for God.




“By saying ‘God bless you,’ she’s expressing herself as a Christian,” her lawyer, Greg Noble, said. “And if an employer is going to restrain her ability to express herself in that way, not say something based on her religious belief, not disrupting the workplace, that’s our concern.”


Authority spokesman Tom Feeney says Fernandez resigned because she couldn’t get steady hours. Feeney says she didn’t mention the alleged incident in her resignation letter or to the area manager.
