Accommodations for employees is not uncommon

By Tom Quiner


Kim Davis went to jail because a judge would not allow her a religious accommodation on her job.

Ms. Davis would not sign her name to so-called same-sex wedding licenses, since it violated her Christian beliefs. The judge wouldn’t allow a simple accommodation that would still issue licenses, but without her signature.

Writing in the Washington Post, Eugene Volokh identified many instances of employees receiving accommodations based on their religious beliefs. Here are a few:

      I’m just catching up on some comments that came in when I was on vacation. Yes, I’ll probably be in the next cell over.
