Accommodating Workplace Praying
I just read an article in the latest Jane magazine about how practicing Muslims often feel they have to "sneak off and hide" in order to pray during working hours. Some use unlocked storage rooms, stairwells, unused conference rooms, etc. The article said that some employees don't tell their managers that need a place to pray because they don't want to be seen as "different" or are afraid to ask for an accommodation or of discrimination.
I was wondering if this issue ever came up in someone's workplace, or how it would be handled if it did.
