Religious Discrimination

Your Religious Beliefs Are Protected by Law

T

he law regarding religious discrimination against employees can generally be stated in two parts:

  1. Employers cannot treat employees less favorably based upon their religion; and
  2. Employers cannot require employees to violate their religious beliefs as a condition of employment unless the employer can prove that accommodating the employee would impose an undue hardship.

Religious discrimination claims typically allege disparate treatment based upon religion or failure to provide a reasonable accommodation. Most cases arise from employers’ refusal to give employees time off for religious observances. Some other cases involve workplace requirements that employees believe violate their religious beliefs. No matter your religion, if you believe you have been the victim of religious based discrimination in your employment, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible to discuss your rights.
