Are you doing enough to accommodate Sharia law at work?

Hoggarth, Adrian; Fuller, Sarah
September 2008
People Management;9/18/2008, Vol. 14 Issue 19, p52
The author talks about the application of Sharia law in the work place. He explains that Sharia law is about whether something is permitted or forbidden, such as any food derived from a pig and all alcohol or food containing alcohol. He notes that under Sharia law, employees must ensure they make up working time lost to prayer and cannot insist on being paid for time off for prayer. He states that Muslim employers must not impose a strictly Sharia-compliant dress code on non-Muslims, nor on Muslims who do not hold the same views.
