This chapter discusses certain miscellaneous issues that typically appear in court cases involving the religious rights and responsibilities of employers and employees. It begins with an overview of employer awareness of an employee's religious beliefs by citing the cases of Steven Lubetsky and Ned Cary. It then considers anti-Semitism and other types of discriminatory animus that often appear in the workplace in the form of coworker commentary and angry remarks, along with the opposition of homosexuality based on religious principles. It also examines the document “White House Guidelines on Religious Exercise and Religious Expression in the Federal Workplace” and those portions of the guidelines that appear particularly applicable to private sector workplaces. Finally, it describes the document's guiding legal principles regarding religious expression, religious discrimination, accommodation, hostile work environment, and religious harassment.

Keywords:   court cases, religious beliefs, homosexuality, private sector workplace, religious expression, religious discrimination, accommodation, hostile work environment, religious harassment
