October 27, 2021

On October 25, 2021, the EEOC updated its Technical Guidance What You Should Know About COVID-19 and the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act, and other EEO Laws to provide more direction to employers regarding religious objections to workplace vaccine requirements. The EEOC provides additional guidance regarding:

Employees' request for religious accommodation

How an employer can assess the religious nature or sincerity of an employee's belief

How does an employer show that it would be an "undue hardship" to accommodate an employee's religious accommodation request

How can accommodation be provided

If you have any questions about this new development or how it may impact your workplace, please contact the authors of this alert or your Miller Canfield attorney.
