Can my employer fire me because of my religious beliefs?

Religion is considered to be a protected characteristic under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. That means that your employer cannot use your religion as a motivating factor in certain employment decisions such as, for example, your termination. Your employer must accommodate your religious beliefs as long as it does not pose undue burden to the employer. For example, as long as it’s not too expensive or too burdensome for the employer to accommodate you.
