Employment law partner Marcia Washkuhn will participate in an online panel entitled “Revisiting Undue Hardship: Religious Accommodations in the Workplace” presented by the Tri-Faith Initiative on Monday, July 17, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM CDT.
This webinar will examine the recent decision of Groff v. DeJoy by the US Supreme Court. The unanimous decision, overturning a 46-year-old precedent, sets a revised standard for assessing undue hardship in cases of religious discrimination brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The panel aims to shed light on the evolving landscape of religious accommodation in the workplace and its implications for employers and employees.
