The Seattle Times is reporting that "Oberto Sausage settled a discrimination complaint brought by six Somali Muslim women who said their employer refused to accommodate their religious practices."
The suit alleged that Oberto discriminated against them by refusing to allow the workers "to take an evening prayer break during Ramadan, the Muslim holy month. The women were fired when they walked off the assembly line anyway."
"[The] company agreed to pay $362,000 and change its policies regarding religious accommodation."
