Boynton Beach Religious Discrimination Lawyer
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, in most cases, especially those not involving religious employers, decisions regarding hiring, termination, compensation and other workplace matters is not legal on the basis of religion.
Most religious discrimination cases involve the failure to provide reasonable accommodations for religious practices – including days off for religious holidays or duties – or harassment due to religion in the workplace.
Our firm has handled hundreds of discrimination cases, and has recovered significant verdicts and settlements for our clients.
