Yesterday, the EEOC issued updated guidance (“Guidance”) regarding employers’ obligations in responding to employees’ religious objections to receiving a COVID-19 vaccination. A full copy of the new Guidance can be found at answers L.1 – L.6, located here

We will focus on the two questions and answers within the Guidance that address the two primary areas that have been the most troublesome for employers: (1) whether a religious belief is sincerely held and warrants an exemption; and (2) whether it would constitute an “undue hardship” to accommodate a religious exemption request. The discussion can be found here.
