Running Time: 00:12:01
On October 5, 2011, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Hosanna-Tabor Church v. EEOC. This case presents the question whether the “ministerial exception” to federal employment discrimination statutes--an exception that generally shields religious organizations from claims of unlawful discrimination by employees who perform religious functions--applies to a teacher at a religious elementary school.
To discuss the case, we have Mark Rienzi, who is a professor at the Columbus School of Law at Catholic University.
