"Employees seeking to observe their religious beliefs and practices have a responsibility to do their part to help resolve conflicts between job duties and religious needs. To this end, an employee must tell his or her employer about the religious commitment at the time the job is accepted or immediately upon becoming observant or aware of the need for an accommodation. Employees must also be clear when explaining why they need an accommodation. Vague objections such as saying that he or she cannot work on a particular day because of cultural tradition will not suffice; the employee must clearly state that he or she is required not to work because of religious beliefs."--Religious Accommodation in the Workplace: Your Rights and Obligations, Anti-Defamation League (ADL)
Do you practice your religion while you're at work? Do you act any differently during certain days or certain times because of your religious beliefs and practices? Do you have coworkers that do? If so, has anyone else at your workplace ever had a reaction?
While I don't eat meat on Fridays in Lent, it's never really affected my behavior much at work, save for the times I've mentioned not wanting a burger or something like that for lunch I suppose.
I hope you all are having a good week!
