New Orleans Religious Discrimination Attorney

Protecting Workers From Religious Discrimination

Have you been discriminated against on the basis of your religious affiliation? Among other protected classes, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of one's religious affiliation. If you are being subjected to religious discrimination or harassment in the workplace, or if you are being denied reasonable accommodation of your religious beliefs, we can advocate for your rights and justice.

At Farrugia Law Firm, LLC, we have decades of experience representing employees throughout Louisiana who are treated unfairly in the workplace. New Orleans religious discrimination lawyer Victor Farrugia works relentlessly to obtain justice for workers who have been discriminated against in the workplace. He utilizes his comprehensive knowledge of the law and his extensive trial experience to achieve results for clients — whether that means recovering lost wages for employees who were wrongfully terminated or obtaining any other remedy available under the law for individuals who have been discriminated against.

Are You Being Treated Unfairly Due to Your Religious Affiliation?

The United States is a country known for its freedom, where people can follow any religious beliefs or follow none at all. Employers cannot discriminate on the basis of religion in hiring or in any employment matter. Whether you are Christian, Jewish, Mormon, Muslim or a follower of any other religious creed, you have a right to exercise your own beliefs. Unfortunately, many employers still discriminate or allow religious harassment to persist in the workplace.

At the Farrugia Law Firm, LLC, we fiercely advocate for the rights of employees who have suffered due to religious harassment or discrimination such as:

  • Employees who are subjected to a hostile work environment due to their religious affiliation
  • Unfavorable job assignments, failure to promote or other discriminatory treatment due to an employee's religious dress
  • Failure to accommodate an employee's religious practices
  • Adverse employment actions due to an employee's bona fide religious belief
  • Refusal to allow sincerely held religious beliefs of not working on the Sabbath
  • Any other discriminatory treatment due to your religious affiliation

New Orleans and Baton Rouge Lawyer Enforcing Your Right to an Accommodation Under Title VII

Under Title VII, not only are employers prohibited from discriminating against employees on the basis of their religious preferences, but they are required to reasonably accommodate an employee's religious beliefs. For example, an employer must reasonably accommodate an employee's desire to participate in a religious holiday or wear certain attire.

If your employer is denying your right to accommodation, attorney Victor Farrugia will work relentlessly to enforce your rights under the law. He has proven experience in holding employers responsible for their actions and obtaining justice for employees who have suffered due to discrimination or harassment.
