The employment and workplace experiences of Muslims are rarely studied, and yet this group appears to face distinct challenges in securing work and progressing in their careers. In addition, given the historical developments in discrimination research designs, little is known about the impact of different designs on the validity of research findings. This paper makes three contributions. It is the first systematic review of the employment and workplace experiences of discrimination against Muslims. Second, we investigated adverse prejudice attitudes towards Muslims and the factors that lead to labor market and workplace discrimination. Third, through our investigation of this phenomenon, we identified the limitations of study design in the current discrimination literature and introduced strategies for future research to overcome them."
