On Oct. 28, as a reference for employers and employees, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission shared its own internal religious accommodation request form with the public. The EEOC stated, “While the EEOC’s internal forms typically are not made public, the EEOC shared this resource given the extraordinary circumstances employers and employees face due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The EEOC also updated What You Should Know About COVID-19 and the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act, and Other EEO Laws, specifically Section K, Vaccinations – Overview, ADA, Title VII, and GINA and adding Section L, Vaccinations – Title VII and Religious Objections to COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates.
