If you were fired, not hired, not promoted, or discriminated against because of your religious beliefs then you may have a claim against that employer. Also if you were denied a job because the hiring person wanted to only hire someone of his or her own religion, you may have a claim. Also, your employer is sometimes required to accommodate your reasonable religious beliefs. For example, some employers may be required to allow you not to work on Saturday or a Sunday if that is part of your sincerely held religious beliefs. Each religious discrimination case must be evaluated by a competent employment lawyer to determine if the employer’s actions violate the law. Religious discrimination involves treating a person (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of his or her religious beliefs. The law protects not only people who belong to traditional, organized religions, such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism, but also others who have sincerely held religious, ethical, or moral beliefs.
Religious discrimination can also involve treating someone differently because that person is married to (or associated with) an individual or a particular religion or because of his or her connection with a religious organization or group.
