 Do you agree with Justice Ginsburg's prediction that the Hobby Lobby decision will be used in the future to impose the religious beliefs of corporate owners on their employees? Explain ?

Apr 18th, 2015

First, look at the Hobby Lobby case and what the Supreme Court decided: http://www.scotusblog.com/case-files/cases/sebelius-v-hobby-lobby-stores-inc/

The SCOTUS blog notes of this ruling: "As applied to closely held corporations, the regulations promulgated by the Department of Health and Human Services requiring employers to provide their female employees with no-cost access to contraception violate the Religious Freedom Restoration Act."

Note that Judge Ginsburg was the voice of dissent on the ruling. This means that she disagreed with it.

So, consider where you stand on this issue-- do you think that employers can make choices based on their belief systems that directly impact their employees? Do you think this case sets a new precedent? If so, what are some other issues that you think could come up in relation to how employers can influence the lives of their employees.

An indirectly related topic might be how employers respond to laws affirming gay marriage. 

How might employers be able to retain their beliefs while upholding the laws that prevent discrimation?
