Marcus – Denied Job Due to Religious Discrimination

Marcus* is a support worker who helps troubled youth in the community. He is also a Christian and holds traditional views on sexuality.  As part of his role, Marcus was asked to sit a psychological suitability assessment, which he was deemed to have failed due of his traditional views on sexuality.

Marcus was fired from his position and suspended from working with youth at any residential facility for 12 months. Marcus now has a record lodged with the regulatory authority which will make it difficult for him to find employment in his field of work.
