Copple founded his own branch of atheism called Sun Worshipping Atheism, a religion of which he was the sole member.
Here, the court concluded that it was a mere personal preference beyond the parameters of the concept of religion as protected by the constitution or statute. Employers need far less to say NO to a religious accommodation than to a disability accommodation.
But first, a bit of background is needed, starting with why older workers want to continue working, more so than did their predecessors.A massive move into retirement would fail to meet the needs and desires of so many older workers looking for career-continuous work that is both flexibly structured and fairly compensated. labour market is a mismatch between the desire of older workers to continue working and the availability of viable opportunities for them.And it would leave a strain on businesses, which would be burdened with having to recruit and retain replacement talent. That mismatch makes it incumbent upon business leaders and policy makers to look at options for capitalizing on the talents and interests of older workers.Often, the choice revolves around a family situation.Research indicates that married couples will often coordinate their decisions to retire.Unfortunately, for workers approaching retirement in the United States, there have historically been only four viable choices: continue to work full-time, take a bridge job that is lower in pay and status than previous career work, become self-employed or withdraw from the labor force entirely.Barring fundamental shifts in these traditional work options, huge pools of talented, experienced workers will find themselves either stuck in undesirable labor situations or aged out of the work force.What is it, then, that older workers are looking for, in terms of flexible work arrangements?Such flexible schedule options typically are offered for all employees, and not just older workers.Rather than going quietly off into the sunset, older workers are actively looking for options to keep working.In fact, a recent AARP study found that 80% of baby boomers expect or want to continue working, and that the majority of them seek some form of flexibility – particularly part-time or partyear work.
