Article 13 - Employment Equality Legislation


The Employment Directive will be a landmark piece of legislation for the British Muslim community and for like-minded non-Muslims who have championed progressively for a pluralistic and inclusive society. Although the legislation falls short of the change envisioned by British Muslims, British Muslims will for the first time have the freedom to pursue their chosen field of employment in the knowledge that they are accorded full protection and civic rights under British employment and anti-discrimination law.

The Department of Trade and Industry, which will be implementing the legislation, has consulted faith-oriented bodies in the drafting of the Employment Equality Regulation, pertaining to religion and belief.
