Discrimination as an unlawful act is usually described as direct or indirect treatment of another person which is unfavourable and based on a defined unlawful ground or attribute. Indirect discrimination is constituted by subjecting a person or group to less favourable treatment than another person or group that results from an attribute they possess, for example, race, sex or disability and arises through the imposition of a requirement or condition on the first person or group that does not operate, or operates with less difficulty, on the other person or group.
Religious discrimination is when a person is treated less favourably than another person in a similar situation because of their religion or religious practices. This may be a business or company that does not permit employees to wear items of religious clothing, a shop or restaurant that does not allow the entry of persons of certain religious affiliations or workplace harassment and bullying targeted towards individuals of a certain religion. Proper legal advice in this area of law may be necessary to ensure that you adequately safeguard your rights and entitlements.
While the situations may differ, there are many ways in which religion is being used as a tool to discriminate against and harm others. The discrimination takes many forms, including: religiously affiliated schools firing women because they became pregnant while not married; Business owners refusing to provide insurance coverage for contraception for their employees; Graduate students, training to be social workers, refusing to people of certain religious affiliations ; Pharmacies turning away women seeking to fill birth control prescriptions; churches, photo studios, and reception halls closing their doors to same-sex couples planning their weddings.
