Getting to Know the Civil Rights Act of 1964
Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the federal government made it illegal for employers to discriminate based on:
- National Origin
- Religious Creed
Your attorney will use the Civil Rights Act as a foundation from which to build your case on. So long as you’re able to provide substantial evidence, and consult with an attorney as quickly as possible, you should be able to compile a compelling argument against your employer or former employer.
Victims of religious discrimination must act fast
All legal claims come with a statute of limitations. Once this time period has lapsed, you can no longer sue your employer or former employer. With religious discrimination, this statute of limitations is fairly short.
Other states lower the statute of limitations to 180 days, which is why it’s important that if you’re the victim of religious discrimination, the time to act is now.
