If You Are Looking For A Theme In Employment Law For 2004


One issue that would have to receive consideration is the increasing tension between groups supporting more liberal policies with respect to sexual orientation and those whose religious beliefs are in opposition. The likely result for employers --- caught in the middle. The headline and sub-head on this article in Christianity Today sums up the position of one group:"Corporate Thought Police:Growing pro-gay business agenda jeopardizes religious employees." With the issue of gay marriage being viewed by politicos as a 'wedge issue' in this presidential election year, it is unlikely that variations on that theme won't be played out in the workplace as well.
