Religious harassment in the workplace

Posted under Uncategorized

One form of harassment involves making inappropriate remarks or taking inappropriate actions regarding a person's religious identity. Examples of religious harassment include verbal, psychological, and physical abuse. 

When religious harassment occurs in the workplace, workers are protected by the provisions set forth in the 1964 Civil Rights Act. While employers generally have broad discretion in terms of hiring and firing decisions, they cannot fire or refuse to hire someone solely because of the person's religious beliefs.
