CAIR demands that DHL Global Mail adhere to Sharia required prayer for Muslim employees.


CAIR demands that DHL Global Mail adhere to Sharia required prayer for Muslim employees.

If CAIR succeeds in forcing DHL Global Mail to allow all Muslim employees to take a break whenever they want to pray then they have essentially forced the company to follow the Sharia law requisite for prayer.  What other tenets of Sharia law will be demanded of DHL Global Mail next?  What company will be their next target as they chisel Sharia into Corporate America public policy? 

Two dozen Muslim workers claim that they lost their jobs at DHL Global Mail when they all left work at the same time to pray.   DHL Global Mail had reversed their flexible break policy.  The Muslims workers took their break to pray in violation of the company’s new scheduled break policy.

The Council on American Islamic Relations held a press conference on November 7, 2013 where they announced plans to go after DHL Global Mail.  "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. 

DHL Global Mail released the following statement:

"DHL Global Mail is an equal opportunity employer and takes seriously all complaints of harassment and discrimination, however we do not comment in detail on pending charges or litigation. Our policies provide equal employment opportunities to all employees and comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment.

DHL Global Mail ensures employees' religious practices are understood and, as reasonable, accommodated. The allegations presented by the CAIR - Cincinnati stating that employees were terminated for religious practices or that requests for accommodations were denied, are unfounded."

DHL Global Mail denied any wrongdoing with respect to the allegations made by CAIR-Cincinnati and said the company will fully defend itself in any action that may be filed. DHL Global Mail also said they take complaints of harassment and discrimination seriously.

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is:

  • Filing complaints with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
  • Demanding that the employees be reinstated.
  • Seeking damages.
  • Demanding that the company change its policy.

Those policy changes would essentially bring DHL Global Mail into compliance with Sharia law regarding prayer.

Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send to encourage DHL Global Mail officials to stand their ground and not give into CAIR’s demands.
