Understanding Religious Discrimination in the Workplace
The law prohibits discrimination in any regard to any aspect of employment, such as:
- Job assignments
- Other terms or conditions of employment.
It is also illegal to harass an individual due to their religion. Some examples of discrimination based on religion include:
- Setting work schedules that do not allow employees to take off important religious holidays
- Refusing to hire employees due to their religion
- Paying employees different salaries due to their religion
- Creating a mandatory dress code that negatively impacts those who wear certain clothing as part of their faith
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 forbids job segregation based on religion, including wearing religious apparel and grooming practices. An employer must reasonably accommodate an employee’s religious beliefs or practices.
The law doesn’t protect a person against simple teasing, offhand remarks, and isolated incidents. Harassment involves frequent and severe torment that it creates a hostile work environment. Harassment also involves adverse employment decisions (being fired or demoted) due to discriminatory factors.
