Religious Discrimination

Title VII and its implementing regulations require that employers accommodate sincerely held religious practices where conflicts arise during employment.  For example, if an employee practices a religion which restricts a practitioner from working on the Sabbath, the employer may be required to accommodate that religious practice.   Employers may determine, however, that the requested accommodation gives rise to an undue burden.  Brendan Hennessy is experienced in religious discrimination claims and can assist either employers or employees in relation to discrimination or conflicts based upon religion.
