When Worlds Collide: Religion & Faith in Today’s Workplace

In 2019, the US Supreme Court may address, “questions of great importance to all employees of faith—questions at the core of how to define “reasonable accommodation” and “undue hardship” in Title VII.”  In the EEOC’s prior FY year (as of this writing), charges based on religious discrimination and harassment tied their all-time, record high that was set 17 years ago in the year following the events of 9/11! What’s driving religious discrimination in today’s workplace? What can or should employers do to prevent and correct it? What’s the risk if we don’t?! Join this interactive program as we consider these questions and more:

  • What are the issues before the US Supreme Court?
  • How are Title VII’s religious accommodation obligations different from disability accommodation under the ADA?
  • Must an employee request religious accommodation? If not, how is an employer to know the need exists?
  • When are employers obligated to offer goods or services to their employees (or consumers) that are contrary to the business owner’s religious belief or practice?
