When to Use This Form

The Religious Accommodation Evaluation Form should be completed by employers upon receiving a request from an employee for a religious accommodation. The form will help the employer in the interactive process and discussions with the employee regarding reasonable accommodations. The employer should consider the employee's request, whether the employee's religious belief is sincere as well as the various types of religious accommodations and come to a conclusion about whether the requested accommodation is reasonable, or whether there exist any other possible reasonable accommodations.

Below is a model form that should be further tailored to fit the employer's specific needs
