Description:

This webinar will provide guidance to counsel on best practices for employers to avoid claims of workplace religious discrimination. The panel will review hiring, accommodation and termination practices amid increased ambiguity in the standards and a surge in employee claims.

Course Description

Religion-based complaints in the workplace continue to rise faster than other types of discrimination complaints. The complaints vary, including employee requests for accommodations to avoid working on the Sabbath and being allowed to wear religious clothing at work.

On Mar. 6, 2014, the EEOC issued guidance to help employers understand the complex issues surrounding religious accommodations. Counsel must understand this new guidance and how to navigate Title VII complexities regarding reasonable accommodation, undue hardship, sincere religious belief, and notice standards.

In addition to accommodation issues, counsel to employers must reconsider hiring and termination practices to reflect a more diverse workforce that sometimes results in a collision of varied religious traditions. Counsel must keep employers updated on both their rights and obligations during the hiring and firing process.

Listen as our authoritative panel provides best practices for hiring, the provision of reasonable accommodations, and avoiding discriminatory terminations. They will also provide employers' counsel with an analysis of recent case law developments.

Agenda

  • Hiring practices
  • Reasonable accommodations
    • Sincere religious belief
    • Notice of accommodation issues
    • Undue hardship
    • Types of accommodations
  • Termination practices
  • EEOC guidelines and legal theories for violations

Benefits
The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • How can counsel aid employers in navigating the ambiguous religious reasonable accommodation standards, recent EEOC guidance, and case law?
  • What are the employers' rights and obligations during the hiring and firing process?
  • What types of accommodations should employers consider based on the context of the accommodation request?

Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
