The Hobby Lobby Decision: Its Impact on the Workplace

The Supreme Court, in its Hobby Lobby decision last term, interpreted the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) as providing new religious freedom rights to closely held corporations with respect to the contraceptive mandate of the ACA. How will the Federal RFRA and state RFRAs interact with the ACA, NLRA, Title VII, and state and local human rights laws? How far will a “closely-held” employer’s claim to religious freedom affect the rights of employees to organize and be free from discrimination? Will RFRA’s protections be extended to publicly traded companies, a question the Court left open? What do attorneys for employers, employees, advocates, and unions need to know?
