Unfortunately, the EEOC, who filed this religious discrimination case, reports that workplace religious discrimination is increasing in the U.S. In 2013, 3,700 formal complaints of workplace religious discrimination were filed with the organization. The number of filed complaints appears as if it will be higher during 2014...
In August 2014, several religious faith groups filed an amicus brief, urging the U.S. Supreme Court to accept the case and hear Elauf. These groups drew attention to the violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act because Abercrombie would not make reasonable accommodations for Elauf's religious practices.
As reported by the EEOC, workplace religious discrimination cases are on the rise.
