Speaking Engagement

What is the employee’s burden when seeking a religious accommodation? (Non-flexibility? Sincerity?) What is a “religious” belief and what is just “cultural”? What triggers an employer’s duty to accommodate an employee’s religious beliefs? When is hardship “undue”? To what extent may an employer inquire as to an employee’s actual religious practices? To what extent may an employee’s religious beliefs be grounds for not joining a union? When, if ever, may an employer impose its religious standards on its employees? Our panel will answer these questions and more in the difficult area of religion in the workplace.
