Religious discrimination in the workplace occurs when employees are treated differently at work due to their religion. Additionally, harassment, retaliation or denying reasonable accommodations on the basis of religion is illegal. People subjected to religious discrimination may be denied employment, denied advancement, wrongfully terminated and suffer other adverse employment actions.
At Holman Schiavone, LLC, we only represent employees in these matters. We have never represented an employer or an insurance company, and we never will.

We Protect Employees Exposed to Religious Discrimination at Work
Religious discrimination can show up in a number of ways. A few examples of how an employer might demonstrate this type of discrimination might include:
- Refusing to consider job applicants based on their religious beliefs
- Asking applicants about their religion or faith practices during an interview
- Paying an employee less or denying workers promotion or other advancements due to their religion
- Refusing to allow an employee to observe his or her religious customs
- Refusing to allow workers to wear religious items in the absence of a compelling reason, such as worker safety, to do so
