A worker claims Heide and Cook Ltd. fired him for following a Hawaiian tradition called "uku-pau, which is a practice of going home early after a job is complete but being paid for the full work day." He claims the State of Hawaii and the Honolulu Refuse Division, among others, honor uku-pau, in O'ahu Circuit Court.
