Clinic Told: Stop Pushing Scientology

A South Florida chiropractic office has been ordered to stop forcing  employees to study and practice Scientology.  Several former employees of Dynamic Medical Services filed complaints with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in which they alleged that their employer forced them to follow Scientology rituals and study the religion on company time, according to the Miami Herald.  The complaint was resolved when the business, which is a member of the World Institute of Scientology Enterprises, signed a decree agreeing to pay $170,000 and to stop dictating the religious beliefs of their employees. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
