Hobby Lobby to Exploit "Grandfather" Loophole to Deny Employees Birth Control


Representatives from Hobby Lobby have announced they will alter their health care plan's start date to avoid having to provide their employees no-cost insurance coverage of birth control.

Hobby Lobby was denied injunctive relief from the law last month. The chain craft store's attorneys announced the corporation would defy the court ruling, which could cost them as much as $1.3 million a day in fines. Qualifying for an exemption from the birth control rule under the grandfather clause could postpone these penalties for a time.
