The religion you practice, and how you choose to practice it is your business, and yours alone. Just as nobody likes having another person’s religious beliefs foisted upon them, nor do any of us like being told that our religion, or lack of religion, is somehow wrong. It is never acceptable to judge someone on their religion, nor to treat them differently because of it but, despite this, and the laws which have been put in place to protect workers from religious discrimination, it continues to happen frequently in both Woodland Hills and beyond. If you have been treated differently at work due to your religion, perhaps in terms of being denied promotion or a pay increase, or failing to secure a particular role in the first place, you could have a case for religious discrimination. Similarly, a JML Law attorney could help if your employer is attempting to force you to follow a certain religion, or to ban your religious dress or facial hair from the workplace.
Religious discrimination is unlawful under both California law and the Civil Rights Act and, aside from that, we firmly believe that our individuality should be celebrated.

If you suspect that you are affected by religious discrimination, we would urge you to contact us and discuss your circumstances with one of our esteemed lawyers.
