Religious Discrimination in Housing and Places of Public Accommodation

In addition to it being illegal to discriminate in the workplace, it is also illegal to discriminate on the basis of religion in places of public accommodation in New Jersey.

Places of public accommodation where discrimination is prohibited on the basis of religion include the following:

  • Restaurants and dining establishments
  • Hotels
  • Places where entertainment takes place
  • Offices of professionals such as lawyers, accountants and doctors
  • Stores and shops

What this means is that a customer is entitled to be treated the same way as all other patrons and customers when seeking goods and services. You must not be treated differently or refused service because of your religion. You have the right not to be subject to harassment and you must not be charged more than someone of another religion. Using different standards based on religion is illegal.

Housing

Individuals are protected from religious discrimination when renting or purchasing homes or other real estate. No realtor, rental agent, landlord, owner, or seller may refuse your attempt to purchase, lease, or rent a dwelling, apartment, or house, or commercial property because of your religion or religious beliefs. It is also illegal for a landlord to harass you because of your religion and a landlord cannot charge you more rent because of your religion.

If you have questions about religious discrimination or if you believe you have been discriminated against because of your religious beliefs contact knowledgeable New Jersey discrimination lawyers for help.
