Abstract

Investigates religious discrimination (RD) and how this is difficult to contend with in the workplace with particular emphasis on the USA – as it has over 239 officially recognized sectors and approximately 1,300 unconventional groups alone! Gives examples of litigation between employee and employer and the courts’ verdicts. Shows that there are numerous factors involved in the upswing of RD cases in the USA, but to solve the complex problem the USA needs to define its stance regarding religion.
