The start of the New Year saw the enactment of several new California employment laws, including one that requires accommodation of employees’ religious dress and grooming needs.
AB1964 requires employers to accommodate an employee’s or job applicant’s “religious dress” or “grooming practices.” Religious dress includes the wearing or carrying of religious clothing, head or face coverings, jewelry or other artifacts. Religious grooming practices include those concerning head, facial or body hair. The practices must be part of the individual’s observance of his or her religious creed.
Employers may not segregate or reassign individuals because of their religious dress or grooming practices.
State government codes 12926 and 12940 regulate implementation of the law.
