Geneva College in Beaver Falls recently filed a lawsuit against federal and state labor officials after it was asked to strike a Christianity requirement from help-wanted ads before posting them on Team Pennsylvania CareerLink.
A private Christian college, Geneva requires new hires to demonstrate “a credible Christian commitment,” a practice at odds with the U.S. Labor Department’s nondiscrimination policy.
State officials noted that because CareerLink receives federal funding, it must abide by the government’s policy that prohibits the listing of any job staffed on the basis of religion. Federal law does, however, exempt religious organizations and schools from those requirements.
The federal court’s decision will be an interesting addition to the ongoing national debate over the separation of church and state.
