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: https://www.eeoc.gov/wysk/what-you-should-know-about-covid-19-and-ada-rehabilitation-act-and-other-eeo-laws
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.
