Case involving worker safeguards for religion is brought before the Supreme Court.

Justices will consider whether to strengthen protections for religious workers. Conservative justices have been looking for a case to review that decades-old decision. The court filled its docket for the term, which usually runs through June. Samuel Groff worked for the U.S. Postal Service, which delivers packages on Sundays.

He was able to avoid Sunday shifts for years, but resigned in 2019 when it appeared he would no longer be able. Other workers complained his refusal to work on Sundays meant more unwanted shifts.
