At the DHL Global Mail plant in Hebron, Kentucky, 24 Muslim workers took a break to pray. They say it cost them their jobs. The company denies any wrongdoing.
At a news conference Thursday, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) says the workers were fired unjustly.
"These workers contend that they were dismissed from their jobs for asserting their right to a reasonable accommodation for their religious practices including daily prayer," said Karen Dabdoub, executive director of CAIR-Cincinnati.
