Religious Freedom or Religious Discrimination?

The religious freedom debate is big news in America. It’s part of a bigger culture war and currently includes discussion around the “Equality Act”.

David Abel, a Pennsylvania business leader has found himself a reluctant yet able player in this national conversation. David owns The Star Barn, a popular wedding venue in Elizabethtown, PA. It became a lightning rod in the community when David concluded he would not allow same-sex marriages on the property. This scenario is similar to other religious freedom and discrimination cases in the US today. What are his rights? What are the issues? What are your rights as an employer?

David will be joined by Bob Pruitt, Senior Counsel, Corporate Affairs at Alliance Defending Freedom and Brad Dacus, President, Pacific Justice Institute.

We will explore guiding principles that you must be aware of related to workplace policies, statements of religious faith, principles for sharing of religious information, prayer meetings and how to legally accommodate an employee’s religious belief.
