New York Religious Discrimination Attorney
Under New York Employment Law, it is unlawful to discriminate against a worker because of their religion or their religious beliefs. In addition, an employer must accommodate the religious beliefs of a worker provided it does not cause undue hardship.
For example, if a worker is a Sabbath Observer and requests not to work on the Sabbath, an employer would probably have to accommodate them. Likewise, if an employee who is Jewish asks not to work on the Jewish High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, the employer should give them the time off.
The Law Offices of Louis Ginsberg, P.C. handled just such a case. The time off need not be paid, unless the company gives paid time off for other religious holidays or the worker has other paid time off he/she chooses to use for it.
