www.nbcnewyork.com Published: June 12, 2014

A federal agency says a New York health care firm forced employees to join prayer circles, thank God for having jobs and say "I love you" to co-workers and managers, according to NBC News.



The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a discrimination lawsuit Wednesday against United Health Programs of America and its parent company, Cost Containment Group.

The EEOC says the Long Island company required employees to practice a belief system called "Onionhead." It includes praying, discussing personal matters with colleagues and reading spiritual texts, NBC News reports.
