Amicus Curiae Brief: Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. Abercrombie & Fitch Stores, Inc.

Posted on December 10, 2014

The Orthodox Union joined with other leading Jewish organizations to argue that an applicant for employment must not be required to disclose her/her religious observance during a hiring interview or at any other time during the hiring process. The probable result will be that the applicant making such a disclosure will be rejected without ever being told that his/her religious observance affected the hiring decision. Rarely will an employee involved in the hiring decision disclose the effect that the applicant’s religious observance had on the decision to reject him or her.
