Perona, Langer, Beck and Harrison provides superior legal representation for victims of religious harassment.
Freedom of religion is an extremely important principle in American society. The law not only guarantees everyone the right to practice their own religion, but also protects against harassment related to sincerely held religious, ethical, or moral beliefs.
The occasional remark about religious beliefs, practices, garb, or grooming practices isn’t harassment. But when offensive remarks or treatment are so frequent or severe that they create a hostile work environment, the behavior rises to the level of religious harassment, which can and should be addressed through the law.
If you have experienced religious harassment in your workplace, PLBH is here to help. We have extensive experience in harassment cases and we will advocate aggressively for your religious rights.
3 Must-Do Steps for Religious Harassment Victims
Report It: It is always in your best interests to report religious harassment to your supervisor or to HR. In some situations, your employer will not be liable for the harassment unless you have reported it. If your company does not have a formal procedure for harassment complaints, you can write a letter to management.
Document It: The more evidence you have showing what type of religious harassment you experienced and how often it occurred, the better. Keep detailed notes of your experience and be sure to write down the names of anyone who witnessed the harassment.
Fight It: Contact PLBH for help fighting back against religious harassment. We can help you file a formal compliant with the relevant state authorities so your case can be investigated, as well as assist you with any legal actions that may be necessary to secure compensation for the abuse you have suffered.
Worried About Retaliation? We Can Help.
Sometimes, victims of religious harassment are reluctant to report the abuse because they are afraid their employer might treat them even worse. While we cannot prevent an employer from trying to retaliate against you for filing a religious harassment complaint, we can make sure you are protected if they do retaliate. If you have been subject to wrongful termination, demotion, rescheduling, or pay cuts, we can help you get your prior position back. We can also seek additional monetary compensation for the retaliation.
