Nuns Volunteering For Red Cross Were Not “Employees” Under Title VII

This is from religionclause.blogspot.com which you can find here:

“In Marie v. American Red Cross, (6th Cir., Nov. 14, 2014), the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Title VII as well as 1st and 14th Amendment claims by two Catholic nuns who were dismissed from their long-time volunteer positions as disaster relief workers for the American Red Cross and the Ross County (Ohio) Emergency Management Agency.  The court rejected plaintiffs’ Title VII religious discrimination claims because ‘their volunteer relationship does not fairly approximate employment and is not covered by Title VII.”‘
