Happy Festivus: Addressing Religious Discrimination in the Workplace

The American workplace is a melting pot of different cultures, religions and spiritual and societal beliefs.  Increasingly employees are asserting rights to pray during the workday.  Other employees are opening professing their faith with clothing and other outward displays. 

This webinar will tackle one of the more sensitive topics in today’s workplace: employees’ religious beliefs. We will discuss employers’ legal requirements and best HR practices for meeting these requirements by talking about the following:

  • Religion v. preference v. political view v. satire?

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act

  • Religious Freedom Restoration Act

  • Executive Order 11246

  • Religious Accommodations

  • Interactive Process

  • Religious Complaints
