Prayer leads to work disputes

Emily Bazar in USA Today reports:

Requests by Muslims to pray at work have led to clashes with employers who say they cannot accommodate the strictly scheduled prayers.

The conflicts raise questions about religious rights on the job. Muslims say they are being discriminated against and are taking their complaints to the courts and the federal government. Employers say the time out for prayer can burden other workers and disrupt operations.

The legal questions boils down to two words: Reasonable accomodation. See Prayer leads to work disputes – USATODAY.com
