ABSTRACT
The article discusses the advantages for businesses of adopting environmental-protection practices as a way of avoiding discrimination claims from employees with strong environmental beliefs. Employers without an environmental policy may find themselves facing claims from employees who consider their commitment to helping the environment amounts to a protected belief. Rejecting an employee request for an onsite waste paper recycling facility without proper consideration could risk a claim.
