Current Bill Summary

SB 1064 - Under this act, it is an unlawful employment practice for any employer to refuse an employee a reasonable accommodation from any requirement related to COVID-19 because of the employee's sincerely held religious, ethical, or moral beliefs. In granting an employee a reasonable accommodation, an employer shall apply the same standards as are required by federal law and regulations promulgated by the Missouri Commission on Human Rights for reasonable accommodations for disabilities. A reasonable accommodation under this act may include an exemption from vaccination requirements for COVID-19 or mandatory testing for COVID-19.

This provision is similar to a provision in SCS/SBs 702, 636, 651, & 693 (2022) and a provision in HCS/HBs 2358 & 1485 (2022).
