Religious Discrimination

New York and Connecticut Employment Law Attorneys

When an employer treats an employee unfavorably due to his or her religious beliefs, that employer is engaging in religious discrimination. The law does not only protect individuals who practice or belong to traditional religions, such as Christianity, Judaism or Buddhism, but also those who do not subscribe to any organized religions or chose again having a faith. Religion cannot be legally factored into any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, or promotions.

It is also against the law to harass any person because of his or her religion. This includes making offensive remarks about a person’s religious beliefs or practices. Offensive remarks that are severe and frequent, creating a hostile environment that results in an adverse employment decision, are considered harassment. The harasser can be anyone within the organization, including the victim’s supervisor, a co-worker, or even a customer.

If you have experienced religious discrimination in your workplace please contact us for a free case evaluation. You can reach one of our attorneys experienced in this at (800) 617-4254 or by filling out our form on our Contact Us page.

Client Reviews

"Boyd Law Group were very supportive through the process. They worked hard and diligently from start to finish. They were very responsive and ensured I understood my rights and were there every step of the way. I can't thank both Patrick and Lorena enough for all the hard work they put in for me through this emotional process. True professionals! Thank you so much!" Lilly

"Patrick, Steve and the team at Boyd Law Group not only achieved a resolution that was more than fair...they were far more responsive and upfront than i would have initially expected given past experiences. They worked with me financially, and were very fair with managing my expectations. Moreover, given the group's experience, they are fair but strong negotiators, great listeners and put me, as a client, at ease. I won't think twice about approaching Boyd Law Group in the future...and recommending them to family/friends and coworkers in need of advice." Victor R.
