In the final days of its most recent term, a unanimous U.S. Supreme Court strengthened religious liberty in the workplace when it decided in favor of Gerald Groff, a former United States Postal Service employee who sought a religious accommodation to honor the Sabbath.
This is a landmark victory, not only for Gerald but for millions of Americans. And it’s a huge wake-up call to corporate America.
As a result of the Court’s decision, every employer in the nation with more than 15 employees must provide religious accommodations to their employees unless it would cause “substantial increased costs” on the business.
No longer must religious employees acquiesce to the controversial ideologies and impositions of corporate employers or fear losing their jobs. No longer can corporate America drive people of faith into the shadows.
