    the whole body of sharia law?..... no.... just as employers cannot impose the whole body of Canon law against it's employees.

    if you want to get into specifics, they are some things that are allowable, though

    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Thinking of the rabid Conservatives celebrating the Hobby Lobby 'victory'....

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    In what country? In the USA, people choose where they want to work, unless something changed. Don't want to work for Muslims? Don't take the job.

    welll.... maybe certain companies not paying for certain birth control measures?...i hear we had a court case recently on that very matter.

    I don't know what Sharia law says about birth control, admittedly.. and i don't really care either...I'm not going to waste my time doing the OP's job.

    Hmm. How about only allowing employees to expense Halal meats when traveling - because the owners do not want to promote non-halal foods.

    How about requiring five prayer breaks per day - no working allowed, you dont have to participate, but you have to hang up the phone and stop serving customers when the call to prayer sounds - irregardless of you closing a deal to get commission or bonus.

    What about refusing to pay for health care unless you get it at a sex-segregated clinic? Or have the care performed by a physician of the same sex?

    I can think of tons of examples.

    The Supreme Court ruling protecting the religious rights of employers does not mean employers can impose Sharia law on its employees. Get over it.

    Re: If an Employer Believes In Sharia Law

    First off, sharia law is an oxymoron. Sharia = law in arabic. That's what the word means.

    Secondly, no, because sharia also means that you cut off peoples' hands for stealing. It is not just a law affecting whether or not a certain medication is dispensed, it also dictates that you're going to behave in a certain way towards yourself and others. Not to mention that if you're a non-muslim, you'll be killed should you offend the muslim store owner. You must accept your role as a dhimmi.
