Compensation When You’re Fired because of Your Religion

Your religious faith is deeply personal. If people at work hold it against you, it can feel crushing.

In America, you’re supposed to have freedom to follow your faith.

Workplace discrimination over religion is illegal.

Both the federal Civil Rights Act and the Ohio Unlawful Discriminatory Practice Statute prohibit it.

If you’ve experienced religious discrimination on the job—and definitely if you were fired because of it— the workplace discrimination lawyers at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal can help you correct this injustice.

You may be able to secure a cash settlement, reinstatement to a job or changes to your work environment.

When you feel powerless, we’re here to give you strength.

Our law firm’s purpose is living up to the words “Helping me, that’s HNB.”

Signs You’re Facing Wrongful Termination Due to Religious Discrimination

If you think your dismissal from your job could be due to workplace discrimination based on your religion, any of these violations might mean you have a legal case against your employer:

  • Your boss failed to give you reasonable flexibility to observe religious holidays.
  • Your company wouldn’t let you wear religious apparel.
  • Your company imposed dress codes that violated your religious beliefs.
  • Your workplace pressed you to participate in traditions outside your religion.
  • A supervisor criticized you for not being a “team player” when you declined to join group activities, including prayers or meals, that go against your religion.
  • You heard a manager make derogatory remarks about people from your religion.
  • A manager pressed you to attend his or her place of worship.
  • Your company tolerated other workers mocking or criticizing your religion.
  • You were paid less than people with similar jobs but of different religions.
  • You were denied a promotion because of your religion.
  • You were fired after you complained about harassment due to your religion.

Even if you’re still in your job and you haven’t experienced a wrongful termination, you could have a discrimination case against your employer.

The key to proving your religion discrimination wrongful termination claim is showing that your firing was, in fact, because of your faith.

This is when you need an experienced employment law attorney. The attorneys at HNB know what evidence to gather so your claim has the best chance for success.

Steps to a Religious Discrimination Wrongful Termination Claim

If you think the reason you were terminated from your job was your religion, you can take these steps to make the situation right:

  1. Negotiate a settlement: An attorney can often negotiate with your employer for a monetary payment, lost wages, or other compensation or agreements that can be better than what you would get without a lawyer.
  2. File a complaint with regulatory agencies like the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission  and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission. Sometimes, you must file complaints like these first before you can sue.
  3. File a lawsuit in state or federal court.

Your employer shouldn’t be allowed to get away with this. Don’t hesitate to stand up for your rights.

At every step, an experienced workplace discrimination lawyer can help you get the best result so you can move beyond a traumatic job loss.

Our attorneys don’t work for big companies. We work for hard-working, everyday people.
