Although we have also been told that there is no “I” in “team”, we are at the point where a combination of laws and societal trends make the individuals more important than the team in the workplace. And, it’s not just the millennials who have the “me” attitude.

This emphasis on “me” can create havoc in the workplace. “Me” issues arise over such diverse topics as religious accommodation, appearance, LGBT status, NLRB involvement in the workplace, and more. Often the employer’s common sense answers are flat-out wrong. It is highly imperative that employers know how to respond to “me.”

Please join us for this 60-minute webinar to learn about employer obligations and employee rights as related to religious accommodation, employee appearance and applicants with a criminal record.

What You Will Learn:

  • What is a “religion”?
  • May an employee proselytize at work?
  • What obligations does an employer have to accommodate an employee’s religious-based requests?
  • Can an employer control an employee’s appearance at work?
  • Must an employer consider an applicant with a prior criminal record?
