Religious Discrimination

What is Religious Discrimination?

Laws prohibit stereotyping or unfair treatment of individuals because of their religion. The founding documents of the United States protects its citizens in the free exercise of religion. Federal laws as well as New Jersey State laws protect those religious rights in the workplace. Your employer or prospective employer is required by law to accommodate your religious practice whenever possible.

Any adverse employment action taken against you as a result of religion may constitute discrimination based on your religious beliefs. Adverse actions can include: termination, demotion, unequal pay, prejudicial hiring practices, failure to promote an employee, and/or inequality in granting leave, training, benefits or work assignments.

Our expert religious discrimination attorneys can show you how to document the pattern of race discrimination and management’s response if you raise the issue. If your case has merit, you may be entitled to monetary damages or other relief such as promotion, reinstatement to your job or a change in company policy.
