New Jersey Religious Discrimination Lawyers

Laws prohibit stereotyping or unfair treatment of individuals because of their religion. The founding documents of the United States protect 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.

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.

Religious Discrimination – Hostile Environment

No one has the right to make you feel uncomfortable because of your religion, especially at work. If your supervisor routinely makes offensive comments or “jokes” about members of your religion, you may be a victim of religious discrimination.

All workplaces function their best when every employee feels valuable and respected. You deserve to feel secure in your workplace, regardless of religion.

Making offensive statements about another person’s religion can create a hostile environment in the workplace. If you feel alienated or distracted because of remarks made by a supervisor or colleague, you do not have to suffer in silence.

An attorney with experience handling discrimination cases can help you figure out the best course of action, whether it’s filing a formal complaint or trying to negotiate a settlement.
