Reps. Bill Hayes and Terry Blair have introduced a bill into the Ohio General Assembly that would exclude religious corporations, associations, educational institutions and societies from the definition of “employer” as used in the Ohio Civil Rights Law.

House Bill 82 would exempt such religious entities from following guidelines of the civil rights law related to employment.

In a statement, Hayes, R-Granville, and Blair, R-Dayton, noted that the First Amendment guarantees the protection of religious freedom to U.S. citizens.
