Your Rights in the Workplace
Religious discrimination occurs in the workplace when an employer treats their job applicants or employees differently or less favorably due to their religion or sincerely held religious or spiritual beliefs. “Sincerely held religious beliefs” means that the law also protects applicants and employees who have sincerely held beliefs toward spirituality, ethics, and morality, but are not affiliated with a particular organized group such as Christianity or Islam.
Employers cannot participate in or allow others to engage in the following solely because of your religion:
- Refuse to hire you
- Terminate you
- Deny you a promotion
- Deny you benefits, training, continued education, learning opportunities, certifications, etc.
- Exclude you from company outings, conferences, seminars, parties, etc.
- Make demeaning comments, remarks, insults, or gestures directed at or about you
- Refuse you reasonable accommodations
If you have experienced any of the above and believe you were targeted because of your religion, please do not hesitate to reach out to a dedicated religions discrimination attorney near you.
