Supreme Court Upholds Ministerial Exception

by Dennis Doverspike on January 12, 2012

in HR General,Legal

This decision does not have the impact of the Pepsi case I posted, as the ministerial exception is pretty limited, but an important decision nevertheless. The Supreme Court has upheld what is referred to as the Ministerial Exception. The Ministerial Exception shields religious organizations from discrimination lawsuits.

According to Reuters: The Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday for the first time in an important church-state separation issue that ministers cannot sue their churches claiming they had been fired in violation of employment discrimination laws.
