New York City Religious Discrimination Attorney

One of the founding principles of our nation is religious freedom without oppression. Most of us believe that everyone has the right to practice their religion without it interfering with their other rights, including the right to  employment. Unfortunately, as our team at Cary Kane is well aware, employees in New York City have this right violated by potential and current employers. The harm that religious discrimination can cause a person is often significant, ranging from causing emotional trauma to serious financial difficulty. Fortunately, people who have endured religious discrimination are not without options and can often seek legal support to rectify the wrongs that have been done to them.

Acts Considered To Be Religious Discrimination

Through both the New York State and the New York City Human Rights Laws, in addition to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, employers are required to treat all employees fairly and not discriminate against employees due to their religion. Some common ways employers can commit religious discrimination include:

  • Hiring or firing a person based on religion
  • Asking a person about their religion during the hiring process
  • Forcing employees to participate in religious activities
  • Making benefits decisions based on religion
  • Not promoting someone due to their religious beliefs
  • Not allowing an employee time-off to observe their sabbath.
