Episode 9: Sinners and Saints

On this episode of the Standard of Care Podcast, Nick and Samantha take on the controversial topic of religious accommodations for the COVID-19 vaccines under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  Can employees request religious exemptions from vaccinations?  What is a “sincerely held religious belief”?  What information should employees provide, and what can employers request?  What is an “undue hardship” for an employer?
