Religious Exemptions for Organisations
Theorists of multiculturalism have long defended the idea that individuals' religious convictions sometimes justify exemptions from generally-applicable laws. Well-worn examples include Sikhs being exempt from motorcycle helmet laws, or Jews and Muslims being exempt from humane animal slaughter laws. This paper inquires into religious exemptions for organisations. A prime example is the exemption from anti-discrimination laws in hiring. I explore four pathways to organisations' religious exemptions and argue that only one of them works -- and even then, only with caveats.
DAY and TIME: Friday October 26, 2.30pm - 4 pm
WHERE: ACU’s Melbourne campus, 250 Victoria Parade, Level 4, room 460.2.80
Although Steph will speak at ACU’s Melbourne campus the presentation will be video-conferenced to:
North Sydney: it is probably easiest for Sydney people to attend the North Sydney location, which is Tenison Woods House, 8-20 Napier St. Take the lift to Level 12, and proceed to the Vidconference room (or email me if unsure and I can meet you in the foyer of the building).
NB. Meeting ID for other campuses dialing in is 6133147
