Employment Discrimination Based On Religion

In recent years, religious discrimination has become one of the fastest-growing categories of workplace discrimination. Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act prohibit these and other types of religious discrimination:

  • Employment decisions based on religion - Discrimination in hiring, promotion, discipline and termination.
  • Harassment and hostile work environment - Tolerance by management of harassing language and behavior of a religious nature.
  • Failure to accommodate - Employers have a duty to provide reasonable accommodation for employees to practice their religion or express their religious beliefs.

At the TB Robinson Law Group, we are strong advocates for the rights of employees. If you have suffered illegal employment practices, we will seek compensation and justice for you.

Religious Accommodation

Employers are required to provide reasonable accommodation to allow employees to practice their religion, unless that would place an undue hardship on the employer. For example, an employer may be required to allow an employee time off on the employee's Sabbath if another employee can substitute. Employees can wear religious head coverings such as hijabs, yarmulkes or turbans, or wear items such as crucifixes, unless that would interfere with employees' ability to do their duties. Employees can also display religious objects in their workspaces, provided that other employees are allowed to display personal items.

If your employer has failed to provide adequate religious accommodation, you may have an actionable discrimination claim.
