San Francisco Religious Discrimination Attorneys
Freedom of religion is one of the most foundational liberties in America. Individuals should never be forced to choose between adhering to their religious beliefs and earning a living.
Federal and state laws prohibit employers from discriminating on the basis of religious or spiritual beliefs or practices. This means they cannot treat you unfairly with regard to hiring, firing, training or terms and conditions of employment.

Facing Religious Belief Discrimination?
Religious discrimination can take many forms, including:
- Unfair treatment: Employers cannot treat people differently on the basis of their religion.
- Failure to accommodate: Employers must make reasonable accommodations for employees’ religious beliefs and practices.
- Hostile work environment: Employers cannot knowingly permit a work environment in which employees are subject to harassment, insults, jokes or unwanted comments about their religion.
- Retaliation: Employers cannot take adverse employment action against you as retaliation for reporting religious discrimination.
If you have been subject to unfair treatment in the workplace due to your religion, you may be entitled to legal relief, including:
- Back pay
- Court orders
- Attorney fees
- Court costs
- Punitive damages
We have helped dozens of clients facing employment discrimination secure damages for injustices. In some cases, we have even obtained substantial punitive damages.
