What should an employer do if an employee's religion prevents him or her from complying with the dress code?

Author: Shannon C. Johnson

An employer must make reasonable accommodations for an employee who is not able to comply with a dress code because it interferes with his or her religious beliefs and practices. While a covered employer must reasonably accommodate the bona fide religious beliefs of an employee, the employer does not need to provide accommodations that threaten employee health or safety or create an undue hardship.
