Religion

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 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.  Religious discrimination can also occur when someone is denied a reasonable accommodation to enable them to observe or practice sincerely held beliefs that are in conflict with employment or academic policies, practices or requirements. 

If you believe you have been subjected to religious discrimination, have witnessed religious discrimination, or have been denied a religious accommodation, please contact the Office of Equal Opportunity & Academic Compliance at (913) 588-8011, or click here to file a complaint online.
