Ruling by Tenth Circuit in Tabura v. Kellogg Provides Guidance on Employer’s Obligation To Reasonably Accommodate Religious Beliefs Under Title VII

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits an employer from discriminating on the basis of religion, and also requires the employer to accommodate an employee’s religious beliefs and practices as long as it does not create an undue burden. There are not many religious accommodation cases that reach the federal appeals court level, and this ruling provides some insightful guidance on the scope of an employer’s obligation.
