Amazon Subcontractor's Alleged Religious Discrimination Lands Company In Hot Water With Employees

A group of Muslim men, contracted by Amazon as security officers, are suing the company and the subcontractor who employs them, SIS, over allegations that they were not given time or an appropriate space to pray during their shifts, despite highly paid tech employees being allowed constant use of conference rooms.

Several Muslim security officers employed at Amazon, Seattle, Washington, are planning a demonstration and have filed a lawsuit after the company failed to accommodate for their faith. The guards contend that the subcontractor who employs them has ignored their prior requests for time and space to pray, and has even retaliated against several guards that spoke out. Outrageously, ‘The Service Employees International Union’ and the guards have confirmed that Amazon grants their high earning tech workers a conference room in which they can pray, but neglected to provide the same privilege to the security officers.

Despite Amazon declaring their support for a lawsuit against President Trump’s anti-immigration initiative, the company’s double standards have left many outraged at the poor treatment of employees. One security guard reported that he was told to ‘pray in his car’ after having his prayer mat trampled. Former employee, Essag Hassan, has revealed that he was fired for requesting to be allowed to pray while he was on his scheduled break: “I was fired and not given a reason why… I’m speaking out for all Muslim security workers and for workers of any religion. When you ask for a space to pray on your work break, that request should be treated with respect.”

A former employee of SIS has also spoken out in relation to the issue, stating “there’s been issues regarding religious prayers, with some not being given a space to practice… When I did speak up, I was actually retaliated against. I had someone step on my prayer items.” This outrageous double standard has left a sour taste in the mouth of many Amazon employees. With religious discrimination becoming an increasingly prevalent issue across America, it is vital that incidents like this are promptly and fairly addressed.
