Types of Religious Discrimination Workers Face at the Workplace


Religious discrimination is a serious crime that is prohibited by the constitution of the United States. According to the federal and state law, every American is free to practice any religion. Every organization, group, or company falls under the law to provide religion liberties. Still, there are some companies or workplaces, where employees face religious discrimination.

Following are the types of religious discriminations that employees face at workplace –

  • Not giving holiday or purposely scheduling of important meetings on a holy day (for particular workers)

  • Preventing promotions or salary increments due to religion

  • Offensive comments or making fun of particular employee based on their religion

  • Forbiddance of spiritual marks, cloths or symbols in workplace

  • Not giving new opportunities such as meetings with clients or partners

  • Firing employees because they were absent on a holy day

  • Forcing a worker to give up their religious practice or symbols

In the above-mentioned situations, workers can complain to the higher authorities of company. They can take further actions such as lawyer’s help if this issue is not resolved.
