Partner Jonathan Berry joined the National Catholic Bioethics Center’s Bioethics on Air podcast to discuss Strader v. CVS, a case that involves the fight for conscience and religious liberty.
“This case arises primarily under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which protects the religious exercise of believers of all stripes in the workplace against adverse actions and mistreatment by their employers. It’s not an unlimited right, but it is something that offers real protection for religious belief in the workplace. In particular, the thing that matters about the law here is that it’s not enough for an employer, in this case, CVS, to apply neutral rules that go across the board. Sometimes the law will actually require employers like CVS to make an affirmative accommodation of religious observance.”
