What is Religious Discrimination?
In the United States, religious discrimination is defined as treating anyone, an applicant or employee, unfavorably because of their religious beliefs. It is also is a violation to treat anyone unfavorably because of their affiliation with someone of a certain religion, whether it is their spouse, significant other, friend or family member.
Organized religions including Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam are not the only religious beliefs that are affected by religious discrimination. Those who have sincere ethical, moral or religious beliefs can also be the victims of discrimination, and in either case is a serious violation of the law.
The law itself forbids any discrimination in employment including:
- Job Assignments
Religious discrimination can also come in the form of harassment from a coworker, direct supervisor, separate department supervisor or even a client or vendor of the company in question. In addition, employers are required by law to supply reasonable accommodations for the observation of religious beliefs, dress and grooming practices as dictated by differing religions. When they do not, it is a violation of the law, and should be examined as such within court.
