Religious Discrimination Is Unacceptable In Massachusetts Workplaces
Overt discrimination against Massachusetts employees on the basis of their ethnicity or religion is relatively rare. Employers are generally well-aware that saying things against your race, national origin or religion is unacceptable.
What Religious Discrimination Looks Like
On the other hand, it is more common for people of faith affiliated with minority religions to experience harassment from co-workers. When an employer allows such harassment to persist even after employees complain, the employer becomes part of the problem. Letting workers go because they have complained of a hostile work environment (including religious harassment) may amount to retaliatory discharge.

Examples Of Religious Discrimination At Work
Contact us to discuss your experiences such as the following at your Massachusetts workplace:
- You, as a Muslim woman, were asked to remove your hijab even when it posed no safety hazard and it did not interfere with your work activities.
- You, as a Catholic, asked not to have to handle products associated with birth control or abortion. You were subsequently fired.
- You, as a Christian, Hindu or Buddhist, were subjected to ridicule and hostility from co-workers. When you complained to a supervisor, you were demoted or moved to a less desirable office location.
- You, as an atheist or nonreligious person, experienced a hostile work environment after you declined to participate in religious activities outside of work that were popular with other employees.
