I don't know. Do smokers who go outside five times a day get paid too?

Would an employer feel obligated to employ a smoker for fear of government anti-discrimination law?

Stop the assembly line? I wonder what the logistics of this might be.
Um, not unless these people are working 20 hours a day.

Prayer is: before sunrise, noon, afternoon, after sunset and before bed. So if you're working a regular day shift, you may only pray once or maximum twice.

The EEOC just released a revised manual regarding religious discrimination in the workplace last month. The number of complaints about that type of discrimination has more than doubled over the last 15 years, with Muslims having the highest increase (peaking after 9/11). It was in the news last month, if anyone wants to Google it.
