Supreme Court to decide whether church school teachers are barred from suing for discrimination


Recommended Posts

The Supreme Court announced today that it would hear arguments in two employment cases involving whether teachers in Catholic Schools can file lawsuits in pursuit of employment non-discrimination rights.  The Court has consolidated St. James School v. Biel and Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrissey-Berru, both on appeal from the Ninth Circuit, which decided the teachers could sue.

The Court may ultimately decide teachers employed by religious schools are all determined to be "ministers" within the context of the ministerial exception. Religious organizations view the full scope of their activity as faith-based regardless of whether or not the work has an overtly religious aspect to it.

**snip**

Employees will need to recognize that they may be giving up their rights against discrimination in exchange for working in a faith-based environment.

 

this is going to be interesting....
