Case Study Religious Prayer

You have recently hired a new employee who is skilled and experienced and has a Muslim background. He has requested he be granted time to conduct his prayer duty which is 5 times a day and a place to do it.

Current policy allows employees 2 fifteen minute breaks, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. A 30 minute lunch period. Your company does recognize Easter, Hanukkah, and Christmas.

What should you do, given current practices and policy that will not precipitate problems with the remaining staff?
