What are some examples of religious discrimination?

On this blog, we have covered some of the different types of discrimination, such as discrimination based upon an employee's age, gender or national origin. However, it is important to point that that people in California may also be subjected to unlawful religious discrimination. If you think that you have been treated in an abusive or unlawful manner because of your beliefs, it is critical to know your rights and speak out.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission states that people who have various religious beliefs are protected from discrimination based on their faith. Not only does the law protect Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, and those who belong to traditional religions, but people who sincerely hold moral or ethical beliefs are also protected from unlawful religious discrimination. In fact, even those who associate with people who believe in a particular faith, such as an employee who is married to someone from a certain religious background, cannot be discriminated against on the basis of that association.

As with other forms of illegal discrimination, far too many employees have been fired, demoted or subjected to another type of illegal treatment because of their beliefs. When employers fail to respect the law and the personal religious beliefs of their employees by subjecting them to unlawful discrimination, they have to be held responsible for their actions. Also, you should realize that this post was solely written for general informational purposes and is not to be misinterpreted as legal counsel or a substitute to legal help.
