Practicing a religion can make many people feel comfort and connection to something greater than themselves. You may attend religious services or have practices that you carry out throughout your day that adhere to your beliefs. If you have particularly open practices, you may fear the potential for discrimination due to your religion.
Make no mistake about it: discrimination exists in our society. It is a real threat to many different people, and it contributes to the negative and unfair treatment of hundreds of thousands of Americans every day. While it is a slow process of managing this discrimination among the general population, the law is very clear about how it treats discrimination in the workplace. It is illegal to engage in any discrimination in the workplace, including discrimination based on age, gender, race and even religion.
