Cert. Granted To Review Title VII “Undue Hardship” Test For Religious Accommodation


The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday granted review in Groff v. DeJoy, (Docket No. 22-174, certiorari granted, 1/13/2023). (Order list). In the case, the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals, in a 2-1 decision, held that accommodating a Sunday sabbath observer by allowing him not to report for work on Sunday would cause an “undue hardship” to the U.S. Postal Service.  Thus, failure to grant that accommodation did not violate Title VII. (See prior posting.)In the case, petitioners are asking the Supreme Court to revisit and reject the test for “undue hardship” announced in TWA v. Hardison. (cert. petition). Here is SCOTUSblog’s case page for the case.
