Trader Joe’s Fires 26-year Manager Even Though He Had Religious Exemption
Gregg Crawford was a Trader Joe’s store manager who had a successful 26-year career there and was granted a religious exemption/accommodation from the company’s vaccination mandate.
Each year, store managers have a meeting to set the direction for the next year. Gregg was informed that only “vaccinated” people could attend the meeting and therefore he was prohibited from attending.
He was also told that attendance was a “job expectation”, and his failure to meet this job expectation would be reflected on his performance review.
A letter was written to the company requesting an accommodation due to his sincerely held religious belief, which they had previously acknowledged. Several methods of accommodation were suggested in the letter, including attendance by zoom call and having Gregg tested prior to the meeting.

After receiving a letter from PJI, the company abruptly fired Gregg for, “going outside the company, taking an adversarial position, and working against the interests of the company.”
Pacific Justice Institute is representing Mr. Crawford for being wrongfully terminated because of his religious beliefs.
“Trader Joe’s mandate that employees inject themselves with experimental vaccines while building an empire on giving customers natural, healthy options is hypocritical,” Brad Dacus, the institute’s president, said in a news release.
Cases like this are happening all around the country, and when we partner together to stand for Gregg, we partner together to stand for all Americans facing similar challenges and discrimination, Dacus added.
