Religious Discrimination Lawyers

Dealing with discrimination based on your religion should never happen, and you are protected by law in these situations. Both Title VII and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibit discrimination based on religion, and require employers to make reasonable accommodations for their employees’ religious beliefs and religious observances and practices. In fact, FEHA prohibits discrimination against a person for requesting an accommodation of a religious practice regardless of whether the request was granted, and this protection extends beyond traditional religions.

Religious Discrimination Is Against The Law

It is important to recognize that we have freedoms at work, and we should not be subjected to discrimination in any form. At Buchsbaum Haag, we have dealt with many situations where an employee has been discriminated against due to religion. If you have ever been subjected to the following, we can help:


Forced to work on a specific religious holiday

Subjected to religious proselytizing (attempts at conversion)

Denied the right to wear religious garb, such as a Muslim hijab

These transgressions, as well as many other examples, could entitle you to back pay, lost benefits, and emotional distress damages.
