Christian Mail Carrier Discharged for Not Delivering Packages on Sunday
When he was hired, Sunday work was never required for Mr. Groff’s position. Several years later, the USPS started parcel delivery on Sundays. For a time, the Post Office and Mr. Groff worked flexibly together to accommodate his religious convictions of not working on Sundays. Mr. Groff simply picked up holiday, evening, and Saturday hours others did not want to work.

Later, USPS began enforcing a no-exceptions Sunday policy on Mr. Groff and needlessly disciplined him. This resulted in him being constructively discharged from the job he loved.

“In a free and respectful society, government should recognize those differences among us that make us great, rather than punishing those differences, particularly when those differences result from our sincerely held religious beliefs,” said David Crossett, a partner at the Cornerstone Law Firm, LLC, one of the attorneys representing Mr. Groff. ...

I always wondered why I was seeing postal trucks on the road when I went to church on Sunday mornings. Then I read that Amazon had contracted with the Postal SErvice to provide this extra level of service due to their Prime Account holders.
I didn't think about anyone using the 'religious objection' clause to avoid doing it, but in a small area, there's not enough 'workerbees' to handle the work.
I wonder if there are any Jewish USPS workerbees who would do the job on Sundays.

It’s refreshing to see someone who still stands up for the Lord’s Day! So many Christian want to do away with this commandment rather than see it as a privilege to serve the Lord in corporate worship on His day!!

This is a very interesting case, usually I'm not very supportive of those people who refuse to work on a Sunday,

But in this gentleman's case, something should be done to grandfather in his peculiar religious beliefs to the job that originally recognize them. It will be interesting to see how this case ends up.
