This book examines a host of issues associated with the growing presence of religion in the workplace. More specifically, it considers the difficulties that arise for both employers and employees when they become involved in workplace religious disputes. The book analyzes court cases arising under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits religious discrimination in both the private and public sector, and the First Amendment, which does the same in the public sector. It also explores the circumstances under which a worker is limited in practicing his or her religious beliefs in the workplace. The case summaries are intended to help readers understand the basic legal concepts applicable to the resolution of religious disputes in the workplace and to undertake measures appropriate to the circumstances they themselves encounter in the workplace.

Keywords:   religion in the workplace, employers, employees, religious disputes, court cases, Title VII, Civil Rights Act of 1964, religious discrimination, First Amendment, religious beliefs
