AB 1964 (Chapter 287) amends the Fair Employment and Housing Act to expand an employer’s duty to reasonably accommodate worker’s religious beliefs and observances. This includes the practice of wearing religious clothing or a religious hairstyle unless such accommodation would impose an undue hardship on the employer. An accommodation would not be considered reasonable if the employee is segregated from customers or removed from public view. Forms of head, facial and body hair that are part of the observance by an individual of his or her religious creed are protected.
