Religious Discrimination Lawyer

Can You Be Fired For Your Faith?

Religion does not exist merely in the abstract. People of different faiths abide by certain traditions that apply on weekdays as well as weekends. That means that religion can show up in the workplace in concrete ways, for example:

  • A Jewish worker taking religious holidays off
  • A Muslim woman wearing a burqa to work
  • A Christian worker displaying a cross in his or her office

Employers have a duty to accommodate workers' faith as long as the work continues to be completed in a satisfactory manner. Furthermore, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employers from discriminating against employees on the basis of religion. However, this doesn't mean that employers always live up to those standards. When you've been the target of religious discrimination at work, you need legal intervention from an attorney who knows discrimination law inside and out. Contact the Los Angeles, California, Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, P.C., at 424-235-1148 to discuss your situation and your potential options. We service clients nationwide.

What Does Religious Discrimination At Work Look Like?

If you are being harassed at work because of your religion, this can create a hostile work environment in the same way that sexual harassment would. Religious discrimination can also happen when an employer:

  • Refuses to allow flexible scheduling for religious purposes
  • Imposes a dress code that conflicts with religious garb of a particular tradition
  • Makes employment decisions (hiring, firing, promotion, salary) on the basis of religious beliefs

Religious discrimination is against the law and can be fought with the help of an experienced lawyer. You have a right to a workplace free of harassment and inequity. We can help you stand up for that right. Working directly with your attorney throughout your case will help you know your rights, get the information you need and protect your rights.
