Federal law (Title VII of the Civil Rights Act) prohibits employers from discriminating on the basis of religion. This means that your employer cannot make any decisions based on or treat you differently because of your religious beliefs or practices in any aspect of employment -- from hiring to firing and everything in between. In addition, where workers articulate a need to express their religious beliefs and practices in the workplace, companies are generally required to accommodate them, unless doing so would cause the company undue hardship. Typical religious discrimination cases involve terminations based upon request by an employee to be accommodated for their religious needs. These can include matters dealing with undesirable schedules, demotions, failure to promote or terminations. If you feel that you have been the victim of religious discrimination we invite you call Arendall and Associates to set up a free consultation with an attorney.
