CAIR: AR Muslim Granted Right to Attend Prayers

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 1/3/06) – A Muslim woman employee in Little Rock, Arkansas, will now be allowed to attend Friday Islamic communal prayers following intervention by CAIR’s Civil Right Department.

After receiving a letter from CAIR, the employer adjusted the woman’s work schedule so that she can attend the prayers.

CAIR offers a booklet, “An Employer’s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices,” designed to help companies provide legally-mandated religious accommodation for their workers. SEE: https://www.cair-net.org/comersus/store/comersus_viewItem.asp?idProduct=3
