Religious discrimination, a form of employment discrimination, is defined as unequal treatment in employment practices based on the employee’s or potential employee’s religion, or lack of thereof. Atheists, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, and, ultimately, every other religion can be discriminated against in employment.
According to a recent Supreme Court ruling, it is acceptable foe religious institutions to discriminate based on relgion, but it is still never acceptable for non-religious organizations to discriminate based on religion. Most cases of religious discrimination involve the failure to provide accommodations to people of a certain religion. For example, if a business refuses to allow a devout Muslim to pray five times a day, it is likely that this business is guilty of religious discrimination. Other examples include not allowing workers to take days off for significant religious holidays.
The other significant source of religious discrimination involves abuse and harassment of individuals of a certain religious affiliation. If religious bigotry is taking place, then it is clearly in violation of a number of laws and the victimized individual has the right to file a legal claim.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, a federal law passed during the Kennedy administration, strictly prohibits religious discrimination. Additionally, many states have their own laws pertaining to religious discrimination.
