ACLU Comment on Supreme Court Ruling in Religious Discrimination Case Against Abercrombie & Fitch
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Supreme Court today decided Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. Abercrombie & Fitch Stores, holding that religion cannot be a “motivating factor” in employment decisions.
Steven R. Shapiro, national legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union, offered this reaction in response to the court’s ruling:
“The court’s decision sends a powerful reminder that religious discrimination has no place in the workplace. Employers should welcome and accommodate religious diversity, not shut their doors to it.”
