CompassCare v. Hochul

New state law forces faith-based groups to hire, employ people who disagree with their mission

Rev. James Harden, president of CompassCare, at the CompassCare office in Rochester, New York.

Summary

SB 660, a law passed by the New York State Assembly and signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, requires all employers—including churches, religious schools, faith-based pregnancy care centers, and religious nonprofits—to disavow their beliefs about abortion, contraception, and sexual morality by forcing them to hire and employ those who refuse to abide by the organizations’ statements of faith.
