Accommodation of religious observances

UBC recognizes and values staff and faculty from a diverse range of religious backgrounds.

In some situations, they may require time away from work for religious observance. In such circumstances, they should make requests to their Manager or Administrative Head of Unit with as much notice as possible, and reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate such requests. It is the responsibility of the Manager or Administrative Head of Unit to respond to these requests in a timely manner.

Some options that Managers or Administrative Heads of Unit may consider for time off include, but are not limited to, unpaid leave of absence, rescheduling of work hours, vacation, and making up work hours.

Questions regarding requests for time off or other arrangements should be made to your Human Resources Advisor or Faculty Relations Manager.

UBC, as with all employers in the province, has a duty under the BC Human Rights Code to provide a work environment that is free from discrimination and harassment on a number of prohibited grounds, including religion. More information can be found in Policy SC7 – Discrimination (formerly Policy #3).
