The Practical Employment Law Podcast: Labor & Employment Law Update Week of 3/7/2022

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.

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.

What can employers learn from these stories?

Listen to the new episode of The Practical Employment Law Podcast for insights on these stories and more.
