California EEO Policy - Updated Liner Notes (Explain this to me)
The liner notes (Explain this to me) of the California EEO policy have been updated to include the paragraph shown below. No changes have been made to the policy, but subscribers may wish to update their content as appropriate.
The California Workplace Religious Freedom Act of 2012 expands the definition of religion to include religious dress and grooming practices. Under the Act, employers may not segregate an employee from the public as a reasonable accommodation to the employee’s religious attire or grooming. An employer that claims reasonable accommodation must demonstrate “significant difficulty or expense” — the same standard applied to disability accommodation challenges.
