The court said that current Church policies, which require employees to be affiliated with a church, must be reviewed. The secretary-general of the German bishops’ conference said that the Catholic Church, which is Germany’s 2nd-largest employer, does not impose religious demands on potential employees, but will “examine how far its recruitment practices should be adapted” to the new ruling.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
