The number of discrimination claims filed with the EEOC by Muslims has more than doubled in the past five years, rising to a high of 1,490 last year. Surprisingly, that’s more claims than in the year following the 9/11 attacks.

At the same time, a new Pew Research Center poll says only 30% of Americans carry a favorable view of Islam, compared with 41% in 2005. Learn your religious accommodation responsibilities at www.eeoc.gov/laws/types/religion.cfm.
