Discrimination On A Religious Basis
In today’s social and political climate, religious belief has been thrust into the spotlight. In the workplace, you are protected against harassment and discrimination based on your religion. If you have been mistreated at work, don’t try to handle the situation on your own. Your rights could be jeopardized if you fail to take the right action within the appropriate time frame. With your livelihood on the line, it’s best to contact an Indianapolis religious discrimination attorney immediately.
At the law office of Stephanie Jane Hahn, Attorney at Law PC, we have more than 25 years of experience guiding clients through several forms of discrimination in the workplace. In many situations, discrimination based on religion, national origin and race can all work together against an individual. The harassment can run the gamut from Jewish to Muslim to Christian. Even though religious beliefs are protected, no religion is immune to the potential of discrimination. If you feel that you have been discriminated against in the workplace, it is important to contact a lawyer so we can investigate your situation and advise you on your best course of action.
Religious discrimination and harassment can come in many forms, including:
- Refusal to hire based on religious affiliation
- Refusal to promote based on religious affiliation
- Refusal to accommodate a sincerely held religious belief or custom
- Termination or demotion based on religious affiliation
- Use of insensitive language or slang related to religions
- Religious jokes or slurs
If you have been a victim of religious discrimination or have been refused religious accommodation, contact our office immediately to discuss your situation with an experienced attorney.
