Labor & Employment Law Update - Week of 3/7/22
Show Notes

In this new podcast episode, recent cases and news from the world of Labor & Employment Law will be discussed, including:

 Religious Accommodation: New cases addressing employer obligations in the area of religious accommodations under Title VII are discussed as well as the EEOC’s new guidance on COVID-19 vaccination accommodations, which was issued on March 1, 2022.  

 You can find the EEOC’s complete guidance here:

 The new vaccine accommodation guidance begins at Letter “L” – scroll down.

 Social Media: The media recently reported on the termination of a longtime executive from the cosmetics company Estee Lauder after an unfortunate social media post that included a racial slur.  What can employers take from this situation and how can they avoid similar issues?  

 Recall Laws: The California Labor Commission recently fined a California resort over $3M for failing to recall employees who had been laid off due to COVID-19 in violation of California’s Right to Recall Law.  That law requires employers in certain industries to offer re-employment to employees who lost their jobs due to COVID-19 or face stiff penalties.  And it’s not just California – these laws exist in other jurisdictions as  well.

Listen to the new episode of The Practical Employment Law Podcast for insights on these stories and more.
