Certain types of discrimination against an employee because of his or her religious views violates Tennessee law (Tenn. Code Ann. §4-21-401) and federal law

(42 U.S.C. §2000e). Religious discrimination cases can be very tricky because of the balancing of rights afforded under the law to both employers and employees.

For example, an employee's faith may not allow him or her to work on Saturdays or Sundays. Under the law, an employee cannot be required to work on a certain day if work on that day is against their honestly-held religious beliefs or church doctrine. On the other hand, the law also may protect workplace policies that prohibit displays of religious materials or symbols or prohibit religious discussions during work hours.

Discrimination that falls under religious discrimination should be discussed with an attorney experienced in discrimination laws. Burnette, Dobson & Pinchak has the experience to advise an employee about his or her rights in the workplace. Please contact us at (423) 266-2121 to schedule an appointment.
