Title: 

"Religious Accommodation in the Workplace"

TOPIC: Religion in the American workplace is one of the most difficult areas for employers to navigate.  In our increasingly diverse society, conflict is occurring at a rapid pace.  EEOC religion-based charges of discrimination are on the rise.  The risks of getting it wrong are powerful motivators for HR professionals to pay careful attention to this issue.  In this session, Kate Dittrick, Attorney at Fraser Styker, will share updates and trends in religion discrimination charges, along with providing a summary of basic standards prohibiting religious discrimination under Title VII.  Kate will share examples of case law specifically tied to accommodation regarding modified duty, dress code, and religious expression.  HR professionals will leave with understanding best practice when developing policies, handling accommodation requests, and fostering inclusiveness in the workplace.  

Agenda:

  • Updates and Trends in Religious Discrimination Charge Filings (5 minutes)
  • Summary of Basic Standards Prohibiting Religious Discrimination Under Title VII (15 minutes)
  • General Caselaw Summary (15 minutes)
    • Modified Duty Cases (5 minutes)
