Religious minorities in France face bias in hiring, new study finds

By The Local

A practising Muslim man is four times less likely to get a job interview in France than a Catholic counterpart, according to a new study.

The research was carried out by the Montaigne Institute think tank which sent out thousands of responses to job adverts using fictional characters.

The study found that men who identified as practising Muslims had a 4.7 percent chance of being asked for a job interview, compared to 17.9 percent of practising Catholics.

The overall figure for men and women showed Catholics were twice as likely as Muslims to get a callback for a job interview.
