Between Sept. 11, 2001, and May 7, 2002, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) received 497 job-bias complaints on the basis of Muslim religion. That's compared with 193 complaints over the same period the year before.

To help solve the problem, the EEOC has developed two new fact sheets: one for employers and one for employees. They give advice on how to handle specific situations concerning hiring, firing, harassment, religious accommodation, temp assignments and background investigations.
