Are religious employers in limbo? (Pardon the pun…)


Bryan Jeansonne

The Supreme Court of the United States did not decide whether religious organization who are also employers can refuse to allow a “back door” filing to have contraceptives provided by a separate insurance carrier to their employees.  Instead they left employers with religious objections (like OLOL, the largest employer in EBR) without a clear decision.  The reason:  The Supremes didn’t want to risk a tie vote.  It’s confusing, and, in my opinion wrong to punt like that.  Hear what attorney Bryan Jeansonne had to say, right here.
