RELST 233 / WES 200: Class Hypothetical (b)

From “Supreme Court Case Tests Religious Tolerance on Sunday Work,” by Jessica Gresko (Associated Press, 18 April 2023):

The case before the court involves a mail carrier in rural Pennsylvania. The man was told that as part of his job he’d need to start delivering Amazon packages on Sundays. He declined, saying his Sundays are for church and family. U.S. Postal Service officials initially tried to get substitutes for the man’s shifts, but they couldn’t always accommodate him. When he didn’t show, that meant more work for others. Ultimately, the man quit and sued for religious discrimination.
