Definition of Discrimination

 RELIGIOUS DISCRIMINATION Employers may not discriminate against any employee because of his or her religious practices or beliefs. This includes harassment, unfair or special treatment, and accommodating the religious practices of employees.

The First Amendment of the Constitution disallows religious discrimination by the government, while Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits private employers (who employ fifteen or more people) from discriminating against religion.

Under Title VII, employers may not:

·  Hire or fire a person based on their religious beliefs – the only exception to this rule is a bona fide occupational qualification

·  Force employees to take part in any religious event or activity, such as Christmas present exchanges or prayer

·  Disallow employees from taking part in their own religious holidays or ceremonies outside of the workplace unless it would create an undue hardship for the employer

·  Harass, or tolerate the harassment of an employee by other employees, due to their religious beliefs

·  Punish an employee who files a claim of religious discrimination

If you believe that you are a victim of religious discrimination in the workplace and you believe that your job rights have been violated you have the right to file a charge of discrimination.  This is a required step before you are allowed to file a discrimination lawsuit.  Click here to get help now.  You may deserve compensation.
