Chicago Religious Liberty Lawyer

The United States is a country of diverse religious faiths. An article on Religion News reports over 221 organized religions in the U.S. Religious freedom is a foundation of our nation, one of the key reasons European settlers came to America. 

Our religious liberties are protected under our First Amendment Rights. The First Amendment asserts, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Many of us take this liberty for granted. Still, Religious Freedom USA describes it like this, “Unlike other liberties, religious liberty was founded and grown on American soil and not an inheritance brought from Europe with the founding fathers.” Religious freedom is a source of American pride. When religious freedoms are abused or taken away, we must fight to protect this inalienable right. 

What Are My Religious Rights?

Church and state are separate entities, so the government must not be involved in religious matters. The U.S. does not have an official American religion like many other countries do. All American citizens have the right to practice the religion of their choice, or they have the right to choose not to practice a religion at all. Many Americans are agnostic or atheist and do not believe in religion. The government has no say in what you choose to believe and cannot hold it against you. 

In addition to the First Amendment, the Civil Rights Act also protects all citizens from religious discrimination or persecution. Employers with more than 15 employees cannot discriminate based on religion; religious harassment is prohibited, and employers must provide reasonable accommodations for religious practices. You may have a religious freedom claim if these policies are not followed. 

Why Would I Need A Religious Liberty Lawyer?

In a perfect world, everyone would work together peacefully; there would be no discrimination or problems due to different beliefs or ideas. Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world, and you or a loved one may have been a victim of religious discrimination. You will want to consult a Chicago Religious Liberty Lawyer when:

  • You have been looked over for a job or promotion because of your religion
  • You are not given accommodations for religious holidays, practices, or beliefs
  • You have been harassed or intimidated by employers or co-workers due to your religious beliefs
  • You feel threatened because of your religious beliefs

Religious beliefs are personal and sacred. It is your indisputable right to practice and believe in your way. The earliest Americans uprooted their lives and settled in America to protect their right to worship in their way. No one should take that away from you or hold it against you. Suppose you believe you or a loved one has been unfairly discriminated against due to your religious beliefs, actions, or practices. In that case, you must employ the help of a reputable and experienced Chicago Religious Liberty Lawyer. They will use their expertise and resources to investigate your claim, defend your best interests, and possibly win compensation for your pain and suffering. Call The Law Offices of George M. Sanders, PC, to speak to an experienced Civil Rights attorney today.
