Religious Discrimination

The federal government protects against discrimination based on religion, along with race, sex, age, and disability. As long as an employee's religious practices do not genuinely interfere with the performance of his or her duties, the employer cannot base hiring, firing, promotion, or compensation decisions based on that employee's religion. Of course, it can be difficult to determine whether an employer's decisions were motivated by religion, genuine concerns about an employee's performance, or some other, more subjective factors. Proper education and preparation can help you spot potential violations of the employment discrimination laws.
