A Legal Employer’s Guide To Islam In The Workplace
Islam is one of the fastest growing religions in the United States, and Muslims are vital members of the American workforce. As U.S. legal employers hire more Muslim employees, and as the legal profession increases its commitment to diversity, this document aims to give legal employers access to additional information about how Muslims’ religious practices and obligations may relate to the workplace.
Given the limited guidance available to legal employers on this issue, the Muslim Bar Association of Southern California (“MBASC”) is providing the following introduction to the religious practices and expression of Muslims. MBASC hopes this document will serve as a reference tool for law firms, legal departments, and other legal employers when responding to the needs of Muslim employees.
