Virginia woman sues, says prayer break request cost her job

A northern Virginia woman is suing a company that she says refused to hire her after she requested two five-minute breaks to pray during her work shift.

Shahin Indorewala, 26, of Woodbridge says her job interview with Falls Church-based Fast Trak Management was going well until she asked if she could take the prayer breaks in exchange for a shorter lunch break to accommodate her practices as an observant Muslim.
