Supreme Court to Decide Case on Employees’ Religious Rights

It’s hard to believe we still need a Supreme Court ruling on a Constitutional guarantee backed up by Title VII of the Civil Rights act. Talk about “settled law.”

In what is certain to be another high-profile addition to its docket this term, the Supreme Court has granted review in Groff v. DeJoy—a case in which the religious rights of employees will take center stage.The petitioner in the case, Gerald Groff, has asked the justices to determine whether his employer, the U.S. Postal Service, is required to provide a religious accommodation excusing him from work so that he may observe the Sabbath on Sundays. Groff argues that he firmly believes he must, as Exodus 20:8 puts it, “[r]emember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.” When the Postal Service began delivering packages Sundays for Amazon, it initially accommodated Groff by exempting him from deliveries that day so that he could observe the Sabbath.
