Religious Accommodations In The Workplace
|Date / Time:
Religious expression has increased significantly in the workplace. At the same time religious speech is increasing, an emphasis on diversity in the workplace has expanded.
The emphasis has shifted from recruiting efforts designed to ensure equal opportunity to efforts focused on policy making and marketing tools which emphasize that the views and practices of employees are supported and respected by others.
This information is critical for you to ensure that you balance these competing demands with respect to issues of religious accommodation and religious discrimination in the workplace.
Gain practical guidance on how to assure their diversity programs and religious policies comply with the current federal and state anti-discrimination laws.
Learn how to balance employees' right to self-expression with the legitimate goals of controlling attendance, solicitation and distribution at work. You will also learn how to address unwanted proselytizing and still avoid charges of religious discrimination.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
