Discrimination Due To Religious Beliefs

Representing Employees Throughout Boca Raton, Florida, Palm Beach And Broward Counties For Many Years

There are situations where a religious belief could be a bona fide occupational qualification. For example, a synagogue would not be expected to consider hiring a minister.

However, for most employers, hiring — as well as firing and promoting — an employee due to that individual's sincerely held religious belief is unlawful.

What Does Religious Discrimination Look Like?

There are many instances that constitute discrimination based on a sincerely held religious belief.

Employers who hire only applicants who share their religious faith or refuse to promote those who do not is unlawful. A failure to accommodate an individuals' faith-based activity could be another instance.
