Employers Need To Go Further To Accommodate an Employee’s Religion

Member Michael Arnold and Associate Kevin Kim co-authored an article published in the latest edition of the Employee Benefit Plan Review journal analyzing The U.S. Supreme Court's recent unanimous decision in Groff v. DeJoy.

The authors wrote, "The U.S. Supreme Court recently issued a unanimous opinion in Groff v. DeJoy that effectively made it easier for employees to secure religious based accommodations in the workplace. Prior to DeJoy, an employer could deny an accommodation request if it could show that the accommodation imposed anything more than a de minimis cost on the business (de minimis meaning so very small or trifling that it is not even worth noticing). After DeJoy, employers may now only refuse the request if the accommodation would cause a substantial burden in the overall context of an employer’s business."
