A person’s race, colour, ethnicity, religion or political orientation must not be factored into decisions relating to hiring, working conditions, pay, opportunities for promotion, access to training, disciplinary action or termination of employees.
The prohibition of discrimination on religious grounds covers religious practices including prayer, dietary and clothing requirements, and religious holy days.
Workers should be free to practice their religion and should not face negative repercussions at work for doing so, as long as this does not disproportionately impact the requirements of the job or operational needs.
Good Practice example: Management set up a prayer room in the factory to accommodate workers whose religious practices include praying during working hours, so workers are free to practice their religion at work.
