§ 11060. Establishing Religious Creed Discrimination.
“Religious creed” includes any traditionally recognized religion as well as beliefs, observances, or practices, which an individual sincerely holds and which occupy in his or her life a place of importance parallel to that of traditionally recognized religions. It encompasses all aspects of religious belief, observance, and practice, including religious dress and grooming practices, as defined by Government Code section 12926. Religious creed discrimination may be established by showing:
(a) Employment benefits have been denied, in whole or in part, because of an applicant's or employee's religious creed or lack of religious creed.
(b) The employer or other covered entity has failed to reasonably accommodate the applicant's or employee's religious creed despite being informed by the applicant or employee or otherwise having become aware of the need for reasonable accommodation.
(c) Religious creed is a protected category under the Act, and the examples of unlawful conduct provided in this section are non-exclusive.
