BOO HOO! BOO FRICKEN HOO! If you refuse to follow the rules of the company in which you are employed, time to get the hell out.
CAIR Michigan chapter of designated terrorist group Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) filed an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) complaint against DTE Energy on behalf of a Muslim former employee who was forced to leave his job because he thought he was entitled to take a prayer break any time he wanted during working hours.
When Ibrahim Canales first began working with DTE in early 2017, he was permitted to attend the Friday congregational prayers by working extra hours each day during the week to make up for the time he missed. However, that changed when DTE replaced his supervisor two months later.
Canales’ new supervisor now refused to allow him to leave to attend Friday prayers, despite the fact that several other non-Muslim employees were allowed to work long hours during the week and take Fridays off completely. When Canales obtained permission to leave on Fridays from other supervisors, he received disciplines that were later dismissed as being unfounded.
His supervisor also attempted to require Canales to utilize personal time and vacation time in order to leave to attend prayers, despite the fact that he was a salaried employee
