This research investigates religious diversity practices at Malaysian public and private sectors. Among the important aspects that have been examined are company policy, dress code, religious symbols or artifacts, recruitment, promotion, training, religious observances, and facilities. Quantitative methodology is adopted to achieve the research objective where a total of 759 employees from both public and private sectors are surveyed. Based on statistical analyses performed in this research (descriptive and factor analysis), religious freedom is practiced in most of the public and private sector workplaces in Malaysia with multicultural and multi-religious society. Results of this study may indicate that there were no issues of religious discrimination among workers of public and private sectors in Malaysia. As this research is conducted from the workers’ perspective, there is always scope of further research on the same matter from the employers’ point of view.
