CERN restaurants offer a wide variety of menus, catering for a range of dietary needs. Supplemented by the possibility to heat food individually at various locations, this provides options for people of all backgrounds, religious or otherwise.
CERN does not provide a designated prayer space, as managing such a space falls outside the purpose and mission of the Organization.
The CERN holiday schedule is currently decided annually at the Standing Concertation Committee (CCP) after concertation with the Staff Association. It is as far as possible aligned to public holidays in the Cantons of Geneva, Vaud and French neighbouring “Départements” of Ain and Haute-Savoie. All leave requests, including those on the grounds of religious practice, are handled within the standard leave framework.
