Who does the law protect from workplace religious discrimination?

We want you to know that it is illegal for employers to discriminate against a person because of their religious beliefs. The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission defines workplace religious discrimination as treating an employee or applicant unfavorably because of their religious beliefs.

The law not only protects those who belong to traditional, organized religions such as Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Judaism. It also protects those who have other religious, ethical, or moral beliefs.

What does religious discrimination in the workplace look like?

Religious discrimination in the workplace takes many forms, and your OC religious discrimination attorney can help you with your case. It can take place in:

Hiring / Firing / Promotion

  • Refusing to hire an employee because their religious Sabbath or religious holidays may conflict with work.
  • Promoting, hiring, or firing employees based on their religious beliefs.
  • Transferring an employee to a position with little public contact because of their religious beliefs.

Failing to Accommodate

  • Employers should allow workers to observe their Sabbath if they can accommodate that with their work schedule with other workers.
  • Employers cannot force employees to remove religious garb (such as a hijab) to comply with dress codes.
  • Failing to allow for a reasonable time to pray during the workday.

Harassment

  • Harassment includes making fun of employees for their beliefs on a regular basis, creating a hostile work environment.
  • Mocking a person due to their religious clothing (hijabs, turbans, yarmulkes, etc.)
  • Ridiculing someone for not eating certain foods banned by their religion.

These are only some examples of religious discrimination in the workplace. During the latest reporting year, there were thousands of cases of religious discrimination investigated by the EEOC and state regulators.
