Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) prohibits discrimination, harassment, and retaliation based on an employee's religion. The U.S. Supreme Court has defined "religious belief" as a belief that is both "religious" in the employee's own scheme of things and sincerely held by the employee. Thus, the law's protection extends beyond "traditional" religions.
