§ 11059. General Prohibition against Religious Creed Discrimination.
(a) Statutory Source. These regulations concerning religious discrimination are adopted by the Council pursuant to section 12940 of the Government Code.
(b) Statement of Purpose. The freedom to worship as one believes is a basic human right. To that end, the accommodation of religious pluralism is an important and necessary part of our society. Questions of religious discrimination and accommodation to the varied religious practices of the people of the State of California often arise in complex and emotionally charged situations; therefore, each case must be reviewed on an individual basis to best balance often contradictory social needs.
(c) Incorporation of General Regulations. These regulations incorporate all of the provisions of Articles 1 and 2 of Subchapter 2, unless specifically excluded or modified.
(d) The Act's prohibition against religious discrimination and duty to provide reasonable accommodations for religious observances and dress and grooming practices applies to individuals serving in apprenticeship programs, unpaid internships, and any other program to provide unpaid experience for a person in the workplace or industry, in addition to employees, applicants, and others covered by section 12940(l) of the Act.
