Religious Discrimination

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act prohibit employers from discriminating against persons because of their religious beliefs. The law also requires employers to reasonably accommodate the religious practices of an employee unless to do so would create undue hardship to the employer.

Decisions about hiring, termination, performance, compensation and other issues of employment must not be made on the basis of religion or religious beliefs. It is the right of every person to follow the religion of their choice, or have their own religious beliefs, without having their employment affected.
