Religious Discrimination

Los Angeles Religious Discrimination Attorneys

Were You Harassed or Discriminated for Your Religious Beliefs?

Under both Federal and California state laws it is unlawful for employers to discriminate against their employees because of their religion or religious beliefs. Under state and federal laws, not only is your employer prohibited from discriminating against you on the basis of your religious beliefs, your employer must also make reasonable accommodation for your religious practices.

Are you facing Religious Descrimination?

You may have a religious discrimination claim against your employer or harasser if:

  • You were terminated for exercising your religious beliefs or honoring a religious holiday
  • You received an adverse employment action such as a demotion for your religious beliefs
  • You received less favorable job assignments because of your clothing common to your religious beliefs
  • You received undesirable hours or job locations because of your religious beliefs
  • You received the fallout from unfair hiring or promotion practices because of your religious beliefs
  • You received unequal access to training or promotion opportunities because of your religious beliefs
  • You were forced to participate or not participate in a religious activity

Religious Harassment in the Workplace

While many people would connect the term ‘Religious Discrimination’ to adverse employment consequences such as denial of promotion, demotion or actual termination, Religious Harassment is also a common and serious workplace issue that might require legal intervention to protect ones rights. Religious Harassment usually evidences itself in the bad behavior of coworkers or supervisors who create a hostile work environment for the harassed employee.

Does harassment by colleagues create a hostile work environment?

If you are subjected to offensive remarks about your religion or your religious beliefs to the degree that it creates an unbearable work environment, you may have a claim for religious harassment due to a “hostile work environment.” If the harassment is coming from coworkers or colleagues and not directly from a supervisor — BUT your supervisor overlooked, condoned, encouraged, or allowed the offensive conduct and harassment to continue, you may have a viable harassment claim.

The employment attorneys at Vincent W. Davis & Associates can effectively represent clients who have been or are being subjected to hostility in their workplaces due to acts of religious discrimination or general harassment whether you are still employed there or were forced to leave.

Some people are fearful to challenge their employer

Some people fear losing their job because they fear retribution for speaking out about religious discrimination. “Whisteblower” laws prohibit most employers from terminating employees because the employee challenges the employer’s unlawful conduct. This includes “at-will” employees that are not otherwise protected by an employment contract or collective bargaining agreement. You do have the legal right to file a lawsuit against your employer or harasser if you believe you have been the victim of religious discrimination.
