Law & Ethics Concerning Religion in Workplace Mindfulness Programs
Professor Brown discusses why it is important for individuals to consider the legal and ethical implications of Mindfulness Programs in the workplace and in schools. First, she tackles the question, is mindfulness is a religion? And then, what is religion? Brown believes that programs in the workplace or in schools should be both opt-in and transparent about Buddhist roots. Additionally, she explains the rights of employees with regard to a report from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that states that mindfulness programs cannot be mandatory at work.
