New Form Recommended by the EEOC for Processing Requests for Religious Accommodation, New Deadline for Federal Government Contractors

As part of their overall effort to keep us on our toes, the EEOC is now suggesting that the request for religious accommodation form published by the White House’s Safer Federal Workforce Task Force may be overbroad. 

Q: What are you supposed to do when one part of the government disagrees with a different part of the government?? 

A: Our suggestion, follow the lead of the agency that will be processing any potential claim.

In another update, the White House recently announced that the deadline for government contractors to comply with their vaccine mandate obligations has been extended to January 4, 2022 (the same deadline that is being used for vaccine compliance under the OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard).
