When Religious Discrimination Happens At Work
Freedom of religion is a fundamental right that must be vigilantly protected. State and federal laws prohibit employers from discriminating against an employee or applicant on the basis of religion. Employers are also prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race or country of national origin, which is important because anti-religious sentiment may be accompanied by racial intolerance or xenophobia.
If you think you may have been discriminated against on the basis of your religion, contact Mezibov Butler in Cincinnati, Ohio. We help people of all religious faiths, including:
- Nontraditional religious faiths
- Atheists and agnostics
Discrimination includes decisions regarding a term, condition or privilege of employment, including hiring, firing, promotion, layoff, compensation, benefits, job assignments and training. If you have been treated unfairly because of your religious views, you may have a basis for legal recourse. Contact an employment law attorney at our firm to learn more about your rights and legal options.
