Does Your Employer Force You to Work on the Sabbath, Even Though Other Workers Would Trade Shifts With You?
Your employer is required to provide you with the reasonable accommodations necessary for you to do your job while observing your personal religious faith.
If you have requested not to work on the Sabbath for religious reasons, your employer should accommodate this request if other workers are able and willing to trade shifts with you.
You should not have to choose between your religion and your job. If reasonable arrangements can be made to accommodate your religious practice, your employer must implement those arrangements.
Religious discrimination in the workplace is illegal. Your employer must provide reasonable accommodation for the expression of religious beliefs, including certain scheduling needs. You are also legally entitled to work in an environment free from religious harassment.
If you believe that your employer has failed to provide you with reasonable religious accommodations, you may be entitled to compensation.
An attorney with experience handling religious discrimination cases can help you navigate the complaint process or file a lawsuit.
