Accommodating Islam in the Workplace: A Work in Progress Written By: Inthe EEOC received 1, complaints from Muslims, the fifth consecutive year the number of complaints rose.
The results have been decidedly mixed. The case was settled within one week. Over the years the company had routinely accommodated her wish to wear a hijab during the holy month of Ramadan.
The employee refused to remove her hijab while working at the front counter and was terminated. Accommodation may turn on context or, in some cases, on the attitude of supervision at a particular branch or operation.
Regency Health Associates,9 for example, a medical assistant in a pediatric health clinic, started wearing a hijab after she was hired, and told management that she eventually planned to wear a full headpiece, with only her eyes showing. Management told the employee however, that it would consider what reasonable accommodations could be made to its dress code policy.
Before it could do so plaintiff resigned and filed a lawsuit against the clinic. The employer argued that plaintiff had neither given it sufficient time to consider her accommodation request nor provided enough information about her request for a reasonable accommodation to be made be-fore she resigned.
ABF Air Freight Systems16 points up the difficulties faced by Muslim employees seeking accommodations to permit them to attend Friday prayers at local mosques. Plaintiff, a truck driver, asked his employer to permit him to add his coffee break to his lunch so that he could attend congregational Friday services and return to work on time.
He even offered to come in early or stay late to make up for any lost time. Plaintiff rejected the accommodation — though not on religious grounds — because he preferred to stay on his usual day shift.
After he was terminated he sued. He argued that working evenings imposed too great a hardship on him, even more so as his proposed accommodation was so minimal.
No one has put a gun to their head. In a pending lawsuit, for example, two Hertz employees claim that the company discriminated against them in violation of Title VII by accommodating Muslim employees with as many as three paid minute prayer breaks each shift while denying non-Muslim employees equal time off.
The break is in addition to a break early in the shift and lunch breaks which are required by law. The timing of the added break will fluctuate during the year to coordinate with the religious timing for Muslim prayers.
The employee brought a Title VII suit for religious discrimination. Many Muslims also believe that even touching pork violates this tenet of Islam, the accommodation of which was recently tested in EEOC v. The Work Connection, in which the EEOC alleged that in order to be referred for work at meat processing facilities applicants were required to sign a form stating that they would not refuse to handle pork in the course of their jobs.
In a consent decree, the employment agency agreed no longer to use the pork form. No pork accommodation is far from a certainty, however.
When he had work performance problems he was transferred to the pork production line, where he could be closely supervised. After he was terminated he sued for religious discrimination under Title VII, as-serting that the company had a duty to accommodate his religious objections to handling pork.An expanded second edition of SLAUGHTERHOUSE BLUES: THE MEAT AND POULTRY INDUSTRY IN NORTH AMERICA is now available.
