DETROIT, Mich. – Most state and federal non-discrimination laws prohibit employers from taking actions. However, for religious practices and disabilities, employers are legally required to take affirmative steps to accommodate employees.
Daniel B. Tukel, a labor and employment attorney with Butzel Long, will discuss “Religion and Disability Accommodation in Today’s Workplace.” during a Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce program on Wednesday, June 15, 2016. The program is free.
