Discrimination against an employee because of an employee’s religious belief is illegal in Missouri. Both Missouri and federal law prohibit employers from discriminating against individuals because of their religion in hiring, firing and other terms and conditions of employment.
The Law in Missouri is Clear: Religious Discrimination is Illegal
Under Missouri law, employers may not treat employees more or less favorably because of their religious beliefs or practices. For example, an employer may not refuse to hire individuals of a certain religion, may not impose stricter promotion requirements for persons of a certain religion, and may not impose more or different work requirements on an employee because of that employee’s religious beliefs or practices.
Under both Missouri law and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, it is illegal for an employer to treat an employee differently based on their religion, including:
- Employees cannot be forced to participate — or not participate — in a religious activity as a condition of employment.
- Employers must reasonably accommodate employees’ sincerely held religious practices unless doing so would impose an undue hardship on the employer. A reasonable religious accommodation is any adjustment to the work environment that will allow the employee to practice his religion. An employer might accommodate an employee’s religious beliefs or practices by allowing flexible scheduling, voluntary substitutions or swaps of shifts, job reassignments, lateral transfers, modification of grooming requirements and other workplace practices, policies and/or procedures.
- Employers must permit employees to engage in religious expression, unless the religious expression would impose an undue hardship on the employer. Generally, an employer may not place more restrictions on religious expression than on other forms of expression that have a comparable effect on workplace efficiency.
- Employers must take steps to prevent religious harassment and discrimination of their employees.
