Religious Discrimination

You have asked for and been denied prayer time at work. You have made it clear that you cannot work on the Sabbath, but your requests to have time off for worship are ignored. You have been asked to cut your hair, shave your beard, or remove your Hijab or other religious headwear. To comply with these requests would be in contravention of the teachings of you religion and of your own religious beliefs. Your employer has an obligation to reasonably accommodate your sincerely held religious beliefs. Title VII of the Civil Right Act of 1964 and the Missouri Human Right Act make it unlawful to discriminate against employees in hiring, promotion, lay-off, termination or other terms or conditions of employment based upon the person’s religion. If you believe that you have been the victim of a discriminatory acts or employment decisions based upon your religious beliefs, or requests for religious accommodation, contact Melvin D. Kennedy today. Employment discrimination complaints are time sensitive and you may lose the protections afforded by federal and state laws if you act too late.
