Religious Accommodation Law and Legal Definition

Religious accommodation refers to an employer's duty to reasonably accommodate an employee's religious observance or practice if the employer can provide it without undue hardship to its business.

Title VII of the United States Code Service provides for religious accommodation claims in its definition of religion, which includes all aspects of religious observance and practice, as well as belief, unless an employer demonstrates that he is unable to reasonably accommodate to an employee's religious observance or practice without undue hardship on the conduct of the employer's business. [42 USCS § 2000e].
