Hi Ms. Sushma
In the month of Ramjan its quite common most of the Muslim staff will come late and go early due to their fasting and prayer. More over even in lunch time few will go for prayer. Those cases we should exclude. We can't restrict on humanitarian base. Except this month they may come early and work bit late too and why do we wanna bother for this particular month for late coming and going early.

Hi Sushma
Its true that we should give flexibility for religious belief wherever possible but at the same time ensure that employees should not misuse it.
I also got the similar request from my staff. what we did is made their timing (upto 1 hr) flexible but they are required to ensure total 8 hrs of working. And if they are not taking any lunch or tea break you can also adjust them.

But you know wat happening...We work from 6.30 Pm - 3.30 Am (on IST)
my staff are coming at 8.30 & going at 3 o clock (morning) (they are not covering any extra hours)..& My manager in US was not quite happy about it...So i really need to work on it...

My manager do respect their religious feelings,He dont mide coming late..The only concern is company was loosing 2.5 hrs a day for every single employee..He is not quite happy on it...

hi in that case you can council with them and ask them to come office bit early and leave by 3.30. they can even leave 4.00. it is not a problem. Any how their prayer will start by around 5
