There are many religious people among us. In fact, everyone believes in something or someone. Faith is a deeply personal matter. Faith has no influence on how you do your job. That’s why there is a rule that no one should be overlooked because of their faith. This would be unequal treatment, i.e. discrimination due to religious convictions.
Let’s see how Ainura found a job.
Ainura is a Muslim. She wants to get a job as a customer service assistant in a big store. Because of Islamic religious practices, Ainura must always wear a headscarf when she leaves home. Ainura cannot remove the headscarf when she goes to the job interview either. But Ainura is worried. She fears that the employer will not like her religion. Ainura would be in trouble if her employer didn’t allow her to wear a headscarf to work. Ainura decides to go to the job interview anyway.
The interview isn’t that difficult after all. Fortunately, the employer knows that faith is a personal matter. The employer only asks Ainura if she can wear the shop worker’s protective cap on top of the headscarf if necessary. Ainura says she can certainly do that. Ainura gets the job. She’s very glad about it! Indeed, faith has nothing to do with work. People’s religious beliefs don’t matter at work.
