Legal Framework Relating to This Issue

SOC/315

6

The Bill of Rights guarantees that the government can never deprive people in the United States of certain fundamental rights including the right to freedom of religion. Employers must make reasonable accommodations for employees to practice their religion. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 ended segregation in public places and banned employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin. Title VII of the Civil Rights act created the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to implement the law. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission EEOC The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was established on July 02, 1965. The EEOC is a federally ran agency with its headquarters in Washington D.C. The role of the EEOC is to investigate discrimination complaints based on an individual’s race, color, origin, religion, gender and gender identity, genetic information, and color. The EEOC vigorously enforces federal legislation prohibiting discrimination in employment.

Fear has caused the workplace discrimination of Muslims in the world today more than any other time.The United States is not the only place that the Muslim community is experiencing workplace discrimination; it is more of a global concern.Countries like France and Israel are experiencing the fear of Muslims amongst them.The overall discrimination of Muslims is not specific to countries where the population majority is non-Muslim. In fact, it happens in countries where Muslims are the majority as well, such as Iraq, Iran and Syria. Some countries do not have laws to protect the Muslim community like here in the United States.

Team A’s Compromise or Alternative to Existing Solutions

Knowledge is PowerOpen communication can give other employees a fighting chance to identify and aid in the elimination of the stereotypes and prejudices others may have about Muslims.Training that is tailored to identify fears and misconceptions of the Muslim community, such as the generalized teachings of the Qur’an. Providing a work environment where everyone feels safe, no matter their religious preference, and if someone does not feel safe they can bring it to their superiors attention without ridicule or playing into any kind of phobia that may be part of the complaint. The single largest part of solving the problem is, inclusion. What does inclusion mean and entail?Companies are doing more to make its employees feel like a team and a family, by hosting company parties, dinners, games, interactive training, and trust ng building exercises.
