Honest and Attentive Lawyers Protect Victims of Religious Discrimination in Los Angeles, CA
The United States Bill of Rights guarantees you freedom of religion
The First Amendment guarantees us all freedom of religion. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits employment discrimination based on religion. At The Ruttenberg Law Firm, PC, we help protect and enforce these rights through diligent, aggressive representation grounded in years of experience and deep roots in the Los Angeles legal community.
Under the law, an employer is forbidden from discriminating based on religion. This includes unfavorable employment decisions or religious harassment. The law protects organized religions and other sincerely-held religious, ethical or moral beliefs. Employers may not impose religious views on their employees or allow co-workers to impose such views — and may not promote or allow religious segregation in the workplace. In addition, an employer must make reasonable accommodations to allow an employee to practice his or her religious beliefs or practices, unless it would be an undue burden to do so.
Examples of reasonable accommodation include:
- Flexible scheduling, allowing for early dismissal or time off for religious observances, or permitting prayer interludes during regular work hours
- Voluntary shift substitutions or swaps for religious purposes
- Job reassignments
- The allowance of dress and grooming accommodations, such as religious head coverings, certain hairstyles or facial hair — or permission to refrain from wearing certain clothing.
- Modifications to workplace policies or practices
