CAIR: An Employer’s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices

Posted on June 23, 2011


Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employers from discriminating against individuals because of their religion in hiring, firing and other terms of employment. The act also requires employers to reasonably accommodate the religious practices of the employee, unless doing so would create an “undue hardship” for the employer.

CAIR offers a booklet, called “An Employer‘s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices,” to promote better understanding of Islam and Muslims in the workplace.
