Religious discrimination involves treating an applicant, staff employee, faculty member, or student unfavorably because of their religious beliefs. The law protects not only people who belong to traditional, organized religions, such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism, but also others who have sincerely held religious, ethical or moral beliefs. Religious discrimination can also involve treating someone differently because that person is married to or associated with an individual of a particular religion or because of their connection with a religious organization or group.
If you believe you have been subjected to religious discrimination, have witnessed religious discrimination, or have been denied a religious accommodation, please contact the EOO office at (913) 588-8011, or click here to file a complaint online.
