Abstract

This research project examines the experiences of Muslims working within the Irish Workplace with a view to discovering how the Human Resources Function can best support them. A wide variety of literature is examined on the topics under themes such as Islam in the Workplace, Islam and the Law, Ramadan, and Diversity. From this wide breadth of literature emerges themes of Adaption and Accommodation, by which the Muslim population adapt their practice to the workplace, and that workplace makes “reasonable accommodations” in return. The results of the study illustrate a varied experience which adapts and accommodates to varied extents. While some workplaces provide prayer rooms and Halal meals, others are left to pray in their cars during their lunchbreak. In concluding the study, recommendations are presented toward improving the issues identified in addition to areas of further research.
