Webinar: Religious Workplace Accommodations - The U.S. Supreme Court's Decision in Abercrombie & Fitch

June 30, 2015
3:00 - 4:00 p.m (EDT)

Miller Canfield is the designated law firm for Michigan and Poland for the Employment Law Alliance, a network of the top labor and employment lawyers in the world.

The Supreme Court’s recent ruling in EEOC v. Abercrombie & Fitch puts employers on notice that they may be held liable for rejecting prospective employees (or not accommodating the needs of current employees) based on their apparent religious practices when those practices appear to be open and obvious, even if the applicant (or employee) never mentions religion or asks for an accommodation. This webinar will review the Court’s ruling, discuss an employer’s legal obligation to accommodate a religious practice, and offer practical guidance on meeting this obligation. Speakers from across the U.S. will use real-world scenarios so that attendees can fully understand how to comply with the Court’s ruling.
