    Are there any NJ laws that protect a workers right o take a religious day off from work?

    There are federal laws that require your employer to make reasonable accommodations for bonafide religious beliefs which can include time off for holidays and religious observances if those are required as part of your religion. Your employer does not have to grant you time off if it would be a hardship to do so, or if you would just prefer to have the day off.
    I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
