Peter Murphy Comments on Discrimination Policies

Have Faith in Your Discrimination Policies

Peter Murphy is featured in the LexisNexis Corporate Law Advisory article, "Have Faith in Your Discrimination Policies." The article focuses on religious discrimination issues.

Murphy notes that defending denial of an accommodation request can be difficult. “Employers faced with a claim of religious discrimination under Title VII who refuse an accommodation request must be prepared to come forward with specific evidence demonstrating the ‘undue hardship’ that granting the request would cause. Conjecture and speculative ‘evidence’ of the purported undue hardship is not enough to establish a cognizable defense.”
