Appellant Roberts, a member of the Worldwide Church of God, sought and obtained employment with Hermitage Mills without revealing his religious disability to work Friday nights and Saturdays. The district judge found that Roberts' inability to work interfered with Hermitage's established six-day work week operation and constituted an "undue hardship" within the meaning of the statute. 42 U.S.C. 2000e(j) as amended (1972).


These findings are not clearly erroneous.
