Racial & Religious Discrimination

Among other types of discrimination, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII), the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJ LAD), and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act (PHRA) prohibit discrimination based on race, nationality, and skin color. These laws also make it illegal for employers to discriminate based on an individual’s religious customs. Employers are required to reasonably accommodate an employee’s religious beliefs, as long as doing so does not impose an undue hardship on the employer.

Individuals may experience racial discrimination and religious discrimination in a variety of different ways. This discrimination may occur directly as a result of stereotyping, prejudice and bias. It may also occur more subtly in the form of differential treatment.

Examples of racial and religious discrimination include: 

In addition to the above, an employer’s refusal to provide a religious accommodation (without any showing of undue hardship) and retaliating against an individual for requesting an accommodation are also examples of religious discrimination.
