EEOC Objects to New HHS Regulations

Workplace Professors’ Blog explains that the EEOC objects on the grounds that "it interferes with the employer/employee balance on religious accommodation struck by Title VII." The proposed rule would create an "absolute right to religious accommodation," which Title VII did not intend.

As Nan Hunter puts it, "Bush administration fights with itself over conscience clause."
