A Good Practice Guide for Employers and Employees
The purpose of the Guide is to explain and provide guidance on the Employment Equality (Religion or Belief) Regulations, which came into force on 2nd December 2003. This law is a welcome development for religious communities in Britain, as it provides direct protection against religious discrimination in employment and vocational training. Such protection was previously lacking, making unfair discrimination a reality for many faith communities, especially Muslims.
The guide has been produced with particular reference to Muslims. We hope this will not only assist employers in complying with the Regulations, but also increase an understanding of Islamic practices that are part of the daily life of Muslims.
