On September 7, 2021, EPPC Policy Analyst Rachel N. Morrison took part in a Federalist Society webinar titled “Hijabs, Dreads, and Saturdays Off: Employees’ Religious Rights in the Workplace.”
This webinar is the first in a two-part series covering employee and employer religious rights and related labor issues. What are employees’ rights to express or practice their religion at work? Can they be exempt from dress codes or grooming requirements? Can they take prayer breaks or a day off to observe the Sabbath? Can they avoid having to participate in holiday parties, abortion procedures (as medical providers), using LGBTQ pronouns, or other actions that may contradict their religious beliefs? This discussion provides an overview of employees’ rights under Title VII and other laws to religious expression, accommodation, and nondiscrimination in the workplace.
