(HEBRON, KY) - On 9 October, 24 Muslims employees of DHL lost their jobs in Hebron, Kentucky, after DHL supervisors reversed a policy of flexible break times that allowed Muslim employees time to pray.

11 complaints have since been filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commissionalleging that DHL Global Mail breached their legally protected religious rights.

Muslim civil rights group CAIR attorney Booker Washington said “We are requesting all available remedies allowed under Title VII (of the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964) and the Kentucky Civil Rights Act, including but not limited to: damages, reinstatement where appropriate and policy changes to ensure that all worker’s civil rights are respected.”

As the second pillar of Islam, Muslims are required to pray 5 times a day at certain times.

DHL has so far refused to comment.
