Islamic group plans to file religious discrimination complaint against Ariens Co.
by Rick Barrett
An Islamic group that is representing Muslim employees at Ariens Co. in Brillion said Monday it will file a religious discrimination complaint over the company not allowing prayers breaks.
Earlier this month, the manufacturer of snowblowers and lawn mowers fired seven Muslims for taking unscheduled prayer time, while 14 other employees resigned over the issue.
More than 50 Somali immigrant Muslims at Ariens protested the company's recent enforcement of a policy of two 10-minute breaks per work shift — without accommodations for unscheduled prayer time.
