Abstract

The case discusses an American food processor that embraces faith in the workplace, which helped to increase employee satisfaction and reduce turnover. More recently, Tyson sought to broaden its religious accommodations to reflect the changing demographics of its employees. However, at the time of the case, Christian fundamentalism had become the de facto religion of Tyson and many employees and community members reacted negatively to the company’s efforts to accommodate Islam in a factory that employed a significant number of Muslims. The company is then faced with a decision of how to react to the backlash against its Muslim employees.
