[MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For the second year in a row, the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) is calling on Swedish appliance manufacturer Electrolux to grant legally-mandated religious accommodation to Muslim employees at its St. Cloud plant during the Ramadan fast.]
[This year, Electrolux reduced the length of the lunch break for employees, and Muslim employees no longer have sufficient time to break their fast and complete prayers after sunset. Electrolux does not permit its employees to consume food on the production floor, and scheduled breaks are the only time during which Muslim employees are able to carry out their Ramadan requirements.]
["It is shocking that one year later, after an EEOC-mediated resolution, Electrolux is still unwilling to provide reasonable religious accommodation to its employees," said CAIR-MN Civil Rights Director Taneeza Islam. "CAIR-MN will continue to advocate for the employees and ensure that corporate arrogance does not interfere with obeying workplace religious accommodation laws."]
