Don’t Let Religious Discrimination Destroy Your Career!

Religious liberty and tolerance are core tenants of the United States Constitution, which protects all Americans from government-imposed religious persecution. Unfortunately, there are still instances of religious discrimination in the workplace. If you have been fired, disciplined, or otherwise discriminated against by your employer because they think your religious beliefs are incompatible with their business practices, you may be entitled to seek damages under the Civil Rights Act and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA).

The attorneys at Hershey Law will fight for your rights and get you the justice you deserve. We’ll work diligently to hold the offending parties accountable for their wrongful behavior.

What Is Religion Discrimination?

The term “religion” refers to any belief about divine power or purpose, including, but not limited to Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism. This definition also includes the practice of religious traditions such as prayer, scripture study, participation in community activities, and religious ceremonies.

Religious discrimination in the workplace occurs when an individual experiences unlawful discrimination because of their religion, which has two components: Disparate Treatment and Reasonable Accommodations.
