Among others, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (“Title VII”) and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”) prohibit discrimination against employees based on their religion. Conversely, atheists may have religious discrimination cases against their employers if, for instance, they are subjected to religious exercises and practices.
It is also unlawful for an employer to discriminate against employees that do not share the employer’s religious beliefs.
Finally, employers may be obligated to make reasonable accommodations for their employees’ religious beliefs, observances, and practices.
