California Employment Lawyers

Anyone can experience religious discrimination, but Muslim and Jewish employees are particularly vulnerable. California and federal laws prohibit discrimination based on religion in the workplace. Your employer must adapt to your religious practices as long as they do not create an unreasonable burden. Failure to do so may justify a discriminatory legal claim.
  • Failure to accommodate religious practices that do not create an unreasonable burden, such as daily prayer or observance of religious holidays
  • Forbidding clothing, hairstyles, or other expressions of religious belief
  • Making derogatory comments about an employee because of his or her religion
  • Scheduling shifts or training that conflict with your religious practices

More About


In southern California, it is unlawful for an employer to terminate, demote, or refuse to hire any person on the basis of that person’s religion or because that person is associated with someone who is a member of a particular religion, i.e., a spouse or family member. This type of bias on the basis of religious affiliation is religious discrimination under California law.

If you believe your employer has discriminated against you on the basis of your religion or the religion of someone you love, contact the Southern California Employment Law Group PC for a free consultation. Call
