This briefing for supervisors examines the law and best practices for supervisors when it comes to managing religious issues in the workplace such as avoiding religious discrimination, harassment and retaliation, reasonable accommodation of religious beliefs and practices and types of religious accommodations.
An employer may use this policy to inform employees on how to request a religious accommodation. Examples of accommodations may include job restructuring, job reassignment, modification of work practices, and allowing time off, or a combination of the above.
This section of the XpertHR best practice manual considers the key issues associated with religion in the workplace and identifies the steps that employers can take to address these issues fairly, while supporting the needs of the business.
