Religion Discrimination

Some studies have counted over 124 different religions practiced in the United States and these religions range from only 10 adherents to tens of millions.  When responding to requests for accommodation for religious practices, though, the size of the religion is irrelevant. The wrong answer to the employee who is a member of a 10-member tribe can create as much liability as the wrong answer to an adherent of a major religion.
