Case Study Religious Prayer
You have recently hired a new employee who is skilled and experienced and has a Muslim background. He has requested he be granted time to conduct his prayer duty which is 5 times a day and a place to do it. Current policy allows employees 2 fifteen minute breaks (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) and a 30 minute lunch period. Your company also recognizes Easter, Hanukkah, and Christmas as holidays. What should you do, given current practices and policy that will not precipitate problems with the remaining staff?
