An interactive exercise gauges where the audience is on their understanding of the religion and basic beliefs and practices. This session then highlights Muslim demographics worldwide, in the United States and in Minnesota. It includes a review of the basic tenets of Islam, emphasizing: (1) the main practices for which employers should expect a request for accommodation and on which attorneys representing employers or Muslim employees should be well versed, and (2) practices to be mindful of when interacting with Muslim clients.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Accommodate Islamic practices so as to better retain Muslim employees.
  • Reduce religious misunderstandings in the workplace.
  • Increase cohesiveness and cooperation in the workplace by creating an environment of inclusiveness.
