UPS Sued Over Firing of Muslim Employees For Prayer Breaks

In a press release yesterday, CAIR reports:
The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations ... today announced the filing of a lawsuit in state court against UPS Mail Innovations and Doherty Staffing Solutions for firing multiple [Somali] Muslim employees who wanted to pray during their break times after previously having allowed them to pray.
The plaintiffs stated that there had been no problem with them using their break time to pray until a new UPS operations manager was hired. He then terminated employees who wanted to pray.
