Question 1


What if a co-worker(s) complains about a religious accommodation given to another employee?


It would depend on the nature of the complaint. If a religious accommodation is met with resentment and jealousy by co-workers the manager should educate the team about religious accommodation and that the manager is complying with their responsibilities. If a religious accommodation infringes on another co-workers’ ability to perform their tasks or creates a hostile work environment to the surrounding employees the accommodation may qualify as an undue hardship and therefore would not be considered a reasonable accommodation.
