The Court system is our check and balance against the Judicial and Executive branch of the Government. So, how is it that the Court system does not consider a single insensitive workplace email or remark to be Insensitive, but the Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, considers it to be “Religious harassment” and a fine of around $30,000 – 40,000.
Hans Bader discusses this situation in his article on the CNSNews.com. In it he discusses how the EEOC’s rulings have been found to disregard the guidelines and prior case law that exists when it is contrary to the EEOC’s decisions. In this particular case, the ruling from the EEOC was “inconsistent not only with court rulings, but also the language of the relevant status, which only bans harassment when it is sufficiently pervasive as to affect ‘terms’ or ‘conditions of employment’“.
Thankfully the Court’s due have a say in these rulings, and the EEOC has been restrained, but this is immense overreaching on their part.
