ABSTRACT
The article reports on the issue of imposing sharia law into account in the human resource policies for Muslim employees in Great Britain. According to Adrian Hoggarth, associate at Norton Rose, it takes 10-12 minutes for a devotee to go through their prayers. But he added that providing a prayer room was not a requirement and providing one purely for Muslims might be discriminatory to other faiths.
