KNX 1070 Quotes Partner Barbara Hoey on Religious Accommodations in the Workplace
July 9, 2017
Partner Barbara Hoey was quoted on KNX 1070, an AM radio station in Los Angeles, regarding her thoughts on the recent increase in workplace religious accommodation claims. Barbara explained that the current political climate has made people more aware of their rights. She has noticed that the most frequent requests for religious accommodation are from women who wear Muslim head dresses, which often clash with uniform codes.
“If a group or groups feel attacked, they are going to go on the offensive,” said Barbara. “People in general who are religious are feeling bolder about their rights.”
