Job-Related Discrimination Based on Religion or Creed
Aggressive and Effective Employment Law Attorneys in Texas and Nationwide
Though our faith is supposed to guide us on how to live together, it unfortunately often serves primarily to divide us. But our Constitution guarantees us the right to express our religious beliefs without fear of retribution. When our differences in religion or creed lead to disparate or discriminatory treatment in an employment relationship, it’s a violation of both state and federal laws. If you or a loved one has been declined employment or suffered adverse consequences on the job, including dismissal, based on your religious beliefs or your creed, you want an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer to fight for your rights. You want Bailey & Galyen.
At Bailey & Galyen, we bring more than 14 years of practice experience to men and women in Texas and across the country who have been subjected to wrongful treatment in employment because of religion or creed. We understand the devastating impact of discrimination in employment. We’ll listen carefully to learn exactly what has happened to you, as well as what you need to fully recover for your losses, so that we can take the right steps to pursue the outcome you want. We’ll work side-by-side with you throughout the legal process, immediately informing you of all developments in your case. We’ll explain your rights and your options, as well as your likelihood of success, so that can make educated decisions about how you want to proceed. We’ll work hard to be available when you need to talk with us, and will return your calls and e-mails as quickly as we can.
Strong Representation in Discrimination Claims Based on Religion or Creed
We provide full-service legal counsel to individuals who have been treated differently on the job because of their religious beliefs or their creed. We handle federal claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Texas Commission on Human Rights Act. Our attorneys will aggressively seek compensation for any losses you’ve suffered, whether you’ve been turned down for employment, discharged, or denied benefits because of your spiritual or religious beliefs or practices.
Under state and federal law, your employer must make reasonable accommodations for your religious practices, provided it doesn’t put an undue hardship on the business. Accordingly, your employer must:
- Allow you to work a flexible schedule so that you can observe holy days
- Permit certain types of dress, grooming or physical appearance
- Not deny you the opportunity to work in customer-facing positions because you exhibit visible symbols or signs of your religious practice
We will help you pursue full and fair compensation for any losses you have suffered because of religious discrimination in the workplace, including lost income and loss of other benefits.
