US Supreme Court Ruling - Religious Accommodation Clarification

06/29/2023 3:43 PM | Maggie Garry

In Groff v. DeJoy, a case where a Christian postal worker sued the US Postal Service for not accommodating his request to not work on Sundays, the court rejected that employers only need to show that the accommodation would cause them to bear more than a de minimis cost.  

Today, the US Supreme Court unanimously ruled that religious accommodations can only be denied by employers if they can prove it would result in substantial increased costs for the business.
