Many companies are complying with scheduled breaks to accommodate the religious practices going further and providing their employees with a “prayer room “as well. The problem is that the amount of paid break time for Muslim employees on a yearly basis amount to five weeks of extra pay. So, it didn’t take long before other non Muslims complained. A class action suit recently was filed from the employees of the Hertz Corporation seeking equal break time. The class action was based on the claim that a benefit provided to the Muslim employees was not made available to non-Muslim employees. This mess reminds me of the squabbles smokers vs. non-smokers fought about with their break time.
