1. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines "religious beliefs" to include theistic beliefs (i.e. those that include a belief in God) as well as non-theistic moral or ethical beliefs about right and wrong that are sincerely held with the strength of traditional religious views. In most cases, whether or not a practice or belief is religious is not an issue. However, generally, religion typically concerns "ultimate ideas" about "life, purpose and death," while social, political and/or economic philosophies and mere personal preferences are not "religious" beliefs. It is important to consider that an individual's religious beliefs may change over time. Additionally, individuals may choose to adhere to some tenets of their religion but not others, and/or individuals may have a sincere belief in a religious practice that is not observed by other followers of their religion. Title VII also protects employees or applicants from discrimination if they do not subscribe to a p...

This includes termination, refusal to promote, refusal to hire or any other negative decision. As an example, Jake is an atheist and is up for a promotion to vice president at a hardware store chain based in New Haven. During an interview, the president begins asking him about personal details, saying he doesn’t know Jake well enough. He asked what church Jake attends. Jake says he does not attend a church. When pressed, Jake says he does not believe in a god. Jake is denied the promotion. The president says the company has a “moral view” and Jake does not share it. Jake may have a case for religious discrimination.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there laws against discrimination on the basis of religion?

Federal law (Title VII of the Civil Rights Act) and the laws of most states prohibit employers from engaging in religious discrimination: making job decisions based on an employee’s or applicant’s religion or lack of religious beliefs.

Are there legal protections for religion in the workplace?

There are no similarities between legal protections in the workplace for religion and disability. The primary law prohibiting discrimination against disabled workers is the ADA. What is its main requirement? Religious apparel and/or appearance are protected under Title VII's umbrella of religious nondiscrimination. Give an example.

Can you file a religious discrimination lawsuit in California?

In most cases, California law offers broader protections for anti-discrimination cases than federal law. For this reason, many people in California prefer to file a religious discrimination complaint with the DFEH than the EEOC.

How does the EEOC deal with religious discrimination?

Religious Discrimination The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) defines "religious beliefs" to include theistic beliefs (i.e. those that include a belief in God) as well as non-theistic moral or ethical beliefs about right and wrong that are sincerely held with the strength of traditional religious views.
