The Ministerial Exception: Hosanna-Tabor v. EEOCEarlier this year the Supreme Court decided Hosanna-Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission concerning the ministerial exception.  The Court unanimously held that the Establishment and Free Exercise Clauses create a ministerial exception that requires dismissal of the plaintiff’s employment discrimination suit against her religious employer.  The case is also notable because of its unanimity.  Our experts will discuss and look behind the case, the ministerial exception, and the manner in which the case was brought to the Court.
