The ruling has implications for anyone practicing their beliefs in the workplace—including Christians who don’t want to work on Sundays. Religious groups—evangelical, Muslim, Sikh, and Jewish—filed an amicus brief together in the case, arguing on Elauf’s behalf.

And lawyers from the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty filed a brief arguing: “The law may not assume that people are irreligious unless proven otherwise, and it should not assume that the workplace is a religion-free zone.”

The court agreed.
