Federal law under Title
VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) makes it unlawful
for an employer of 15 or more employees to discriminate against applicants
or employees on the basis of religion. Covered employers must provide reasonable
accommodation for an employee's religious beliefs or practices. Harassment
in the workplace based on an employee's religious beliefs is also prohibited.
An employee who falls within the ministerial exception to federal fair employment
laws is not protected from employment discrimination under Title VII.
