To say there has been a lot going on recently in the world of employment law would be an understatement. While much of the focus has been on immigration and sexual harassment, disability and religious accommodations have been, and will continue to be, a hot topic for employers. This is especially true as the workplace continues to advance and change with the next generation of employees entering the workforce. Additionally, recent technological and medical advancements have made employers more aware of a variety of medical and mental impairments, and with America being the melting pot it is, employees today have very diverse religious affiliations. Whatever the reason, disability or religion, employers must make certain employment accommodations.
Specifically, we will tackle:
• Telecommuting and leave as an accommodation;
• Emotional support animals;
• Obesity-related disorders;
• Increased mental infirmaries added to the DSM-V (which the EEOC has recognized as relevant for identifying mental impairments) that employers need to know to determine if they qualify for accommodation and, if so, how.
We will also discuss religious accommodations including:
• The use and collection of biometric employee data;
• Leave accommodations;
• Body modification and clothing accommodations such as tattoos, piercings, dreadlocks, beards, etc.
• What type of religious activities qualify for accommodation and which do not.
We'll also discuss proper policy drafting associated with these types of accommodations and other procedural, HR issues to help employers ferret out the problem.
