France's association of Human Resources Managers (ANDRH) has proposed the cancellation of 3 of France's annual Christian public holidays in an effort to promote diversity in the workplace.

As per the aforementioned proposal, the annual anon-working public holidays for Ascension, Whitmonday and Assumption would be canceled, to be replaced by a new annual public holiday for Yom Kippur and one for each of the Muslim Eids.

A similar proposal had been made by the EELV presidential candidate, earlier this year (2012-01-12).
