The recent acts of terrorism in the name of religion around the globe, the political protest in Brazil, along with the protests in the United States by extremist groups, have created management issues for all employers. This issue is no longer isolated to one country; the ramifications of extremist views have been experienced globally. While not agreed upon, extremism is generally defined as an ideology violating common moral standards. This can be true of any behavior that reaches a point where it is deemed extremist, whether religious or political.

It often creates issues when employees hold or express extremist views, whether religious or political, and bring those views to the workplace. Such actions can result in disputes, disruptions and other unwanted conduct in the workplace. Managing the conduct and repercussions of extremist behavior by employees has become a primary global concern for employers because of the need to ensure the safety of the workplace and to provide a workplace that is free of harassment or discrimination because of religious beliefs or any other protected right. Most global employers must allow employees to hold differing religious or political views, thus employers must balance the religious freedoms with the obligation to provide a safe work environment.
