Civil rights group alleges discrimination against Muslim cab drivers
by Jeff Kunerth
The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said Tuesday it was filing a discrimination lawsuit against Star Taxi in Orlando on behalf of eight Muslim employees who claim they were denied the right to pray by the cab company.
The eight cab drivers allege employment discrimination by the company and a hostile work environment based on their religion.
One of the former drivers claims he was wrongfully terminated for attempting to pray while on his break.
