In a perfect world, no one would receive unfavorable treatment because of religious views during the hiring process. Religion would not keep an individual from getting a promotion or be used as justification for assigning undesirable tasks or shifts. An employee’s religion would also not be a subject for jokes or ridicule in the workplace.
However, we don’t live in a perfect world. We know these things happen in Georgia even though they are illegal. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits workplace discrimination based on religion. If you believe you are a victim of illegal discrimination based on your religious, moral, or ethical beliefs, an experienced religious discrimination lawyer in Georgia may be able to help you find relief, including compensation.
The qualified and skilled attorneys at The Leach Firm, PA know what it takes to prove illegal religious discrimination in the workplace. Count on our team to work with you to gather the necessary information to build a solid case. We are so confident in our work that our firm will not charge you unless you receive financial compensation from a verdict or settlement.
Applying the Law
Title VII applies to employers in the public and private sectors. A worker does not need to hold formal membership in a church to succeed with a claim for religious discrimination in the workplace. The law applies to religion in which the individual’s beliefs are sincere.
Although the law cannot prevent discrimination, it gives employees a way to right the wrongs and advocate for themselves and others in the workplace. Moreover, the laws also make it illegal for employers to retaliate against workers who exercise their rights.
