The First Amendment protects your right to practice- or refrain from practicing- any religion. Both state and federal laws make employment discrimination because of someone’s faith illegal, and protect workers who choose to openly practice the religion of their choice.
Sadly, others in the workplace do not always follow these laws. Supervisors may fail to promote an employee because of their religious faith, and co-workers may mock and harass employees who hold different beliefs. Often, employers turn a blind eye to this illegal harassment, thinking that civil rights laws do not apply to them.
