Brad Amos is a former video editor for Ramsey Solutions, and his legal complaint against Ramsey centers on his denied request to work from home during the pandemic.
Amos cited his strong religious beliefs about safeguarding his family against COVID-19 as the reason for the request. Upon denying the request, Ramsey reportedly called it a “weakness of spirit.” Amos also claims that employees were encouraged to pray in lieu of taking the recommended precautions against COVID-19.
In a statement made to RNS, Ramsey Solutions says that Amos’ lawsuit has “no merit,” claiming that Amos’ only goal is to “smear Ramsey Solutions’ reputation and extort a large settlement.”
Ramsey Solutions is currently involved in three other lawsuits, including one in which the complainant claims she was forced to quit for being gay, another where a woman was fired for becoming pregnant out of wedlock, and a dispute with Marriott resulting from the financial loss incurred when Ramsey abruptly changed the location of a conference due to Marriott’s mask policy.
In April 2021, Inc. Magazine removed Ramsey Solutions from its list of “Best Workplaces.”
