What is Religious Discrimination?
According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, religious discrimination occurs when you are treated unfairly due to your personal religious beliefs. What religion or belief system you are a part of is irrelevant. If an employer, boss, or coworker discriminates against you because of your religion, we can hold them legally accountable for their actions.
It is also against the law for someone to harass you because of your religion. For instance, if someone at work makes offensive comments about your religion, and their comments or actions create a hostile work environment, you may be able to file a claim against the individual organization.

Damages in a Discrimination Case

Lost Current or Future Income

Legal costs can range from attorney fees to expert witness fees and attorney’s fees. If we establish that the other party is guilty of discrimination, they may be liable for part or all of our legal fees.
Even if we prove your claim and win your case, your professional reputation may be tarnished. As a result, you may be ‘black-listed in your industry. You may be awarded compensation for professional damages or harm to your career or reputation.
Pain and Suffering
Discrimination can cause a tremendous amount of emotional pain and mental distress. If you received counseling for depression or anxiety, we may be able to account for pain and suffering in your claim.
