Responding to employees’ disability-based accommodation requests has become second nature for healthcare institutions. But, what about requests for religious accommodations? In this webinar, Jackson Lewis P.C. attorneys Tiffany Buckley-Norwood, Mary McCudden, and Jed Charner will provide practical case studies with clear takeaways and best practices for reasonably accommodating your employees’ sincerely-held religious beliefs without compromising patient safety.

Learn how to respond when an employee:

  • Declines a vaccination;
  • Refuses to shave facial hair;
  • Requests break time during the day for prayer;
  • Requests to not be scheduled on a Sabbath; and
  • Has religious objections to providing certain treatment.
