Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Religious Beliefs of Business Owner
Fisher & Phillips LLP Link to more items from this source
June 30, 2014
"[T]he Court's opinion ... seemed to limit itself to the contraceptive mandate only, likely quelling the concerns of many who argued a broader decision may put in jeopardy other items typically covered under group plans, such as vaccinations and blood transfusions.... [T]he Court warned that its decision should not be interpreted to provide a shield to employers to cloak illegal discrimination under the guise of claimed religious beliefs ... [E]ven as to the ACA's contraception requirements, this decision likely will not seem to extend to larger corporations with diverse ownership interests." [Burwell v. Hobby Lobby et al., No. 13-354 (U.S. June 30, 2014)]
