Choosing whether or not to practice a religion and, indeed, which religion you choose to practice, is a very personal decision and not one that should be any concern of others. Despite this, it is all too often an issue in the workplace, where religious discrimination can see some individuals subjected to verbal or physical abuse, or treated differently to their co-workers, simply because of their religion. It is unlawful to refuse to hire a potential employee, offer a different rate of pay, or make promotion and advancement decisions based on a person’s religious beliefs, or lack thereof. If you have been subjected to such treatment by your co-workers, supervisor, manager, or employer, a San Bernardino religious discrimination attorney from JML Law can harness the full extent of our legal expertise and experience in fighting for your rights.
