According to federal and Texas discrimination laws, religious discrimination in the workplace occurs when an employer or colleague discriminates against or harasses you because of your religious beliefs, from organized religion to informal or new faiths.
Employers have a duty to make reasonable accommodations for, not impose upon or take negative actions against you because of, your religious practices. Religion, as defined by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, encompasses all aspects of observing your beliefs. This includes the ability to wear religious garb and the observance of religious holidays.
