Discrimination Based on Religious or Political Affiliations
Discrimination in the workplace based on an employee's religious or political practices or viewpoints may violate state and federal laws. Such discrimination can occur if you have been denied a job due to the views you hold, fired from a job, given an undesirable job assignment, transferred to an inferior or unreasonable position, denied a promotion, demoted, denied job training, unfairly compensated, forced into retirement, or harassed. Employment discrimination may be obvious or subtle, intentional or unintentional. Employees or prospective employees who report this type of discrimination may face retaliation by employers, which is also illegal.

Federal law under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and various state laws prohibit employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, political affiliation, age, language abilities, and disabilities. These laws have been developed over time by not only the federal and state governments but by municipalities and through local ordinances. Many state employment discrimination laws extend protections to workers beyond those guaranteed by the federal government.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) acts to enforce federal anti-discrimination laws, such as Title VII, equal pay legislation, as well as age discrimination and disability discrimination laws. States enforce their anti-discrimination laws through State Fair Employment Practices.
