Community publishes guidance for workers of faith and religious belief

24th May 2020

 

Many Muslim Community members will be celebrating Eid ul Fitr this weekend, having observed Ramadan in very unusual circumstances. We want to wish all of our Muslim members and friends Eid Mubarak. We hope that you are able to celebrate this weekend with loved ones virtually.

Community values the diversity of faith and belief of our membership- we believe that our differences make us stronger. We believe that everyone should be valued at work. It’s really important that our workplaces are supportive and respectful, and that nobody is subject to discrimination because of their faith or belief. Unfortunately, many religious workers still face discrimination because of their  beliefs. We are always here for our members if this happens.

We want all our members to understand their rights. That’s why we’re sharing today advice for our members and reps, to help you to understand the law around fair treatment of people of faith in the workplace. We’re also sharing answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about faith and work.

You can read the guidance here.
