The latest Employment Law & Litigation Committee Newsletter for the American Bar Association features an article written by our own Nadia Bermudez and Chaka Okadigbo. The article, on religious accommodations in the workplace, cites two recent federal court rulings that highlight the difficulty in defining religion in federal religious discrimination cases.
The article provides suggestions to employers on how to best handle requests for leave by employees and is a useful review on what constitutes religious discrimination at the state and federal level. Click here for the article and read the rest of the newsletter here.
