Training Overview

New EEOC Guidance on Vaccine Religious Exemptions. Learn how it applies to your organization.

On October 25, the EEOC posted updated and expanded technical assistance addressing religious exemptions to COVID-19 vaccine mandates. This document explains how Title VII relates to vaccination requirements and how employers should respond to requests for exemption.

Just because an employee claims the need for a religious accommodation does not mean that the employee is entitled to it. The stance of various religions complicates this analysis. You need to know what exemptions are allowed and follow an appropriate process to avoid liability and maintain compliance with the evolving legal requirements.
