Today’s workforce is made up of individuals with varying and sometimes conflicting opinions about appropriate religious expression, particularly in the workplace. Because religion can be so deeply personal, disagreements tend to be uncomfortable, especially when emotions run high. In this atmosphere, employers may face challenging questions as they attempt to balance the rights of employees and the needs of the business, and be uncertain of what actions or policies they can and cannot implement to address the issue of religion.
Highlights of this webinar include:
- An overview of the legal background of this issue, including federal regulations, case law and best practices;
- An in-depth look at all issues of religion in the workplace: discrimination, harassment, accommodation and inclusion; and
- Practical strategies to deal with situations that may arise concerning religion in the workplace.
