  On Monday, June 30, 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of family-owned and other closely-held for-profit businesses that want to opt out of part of the Affordable Care Act for religious reasons.

Oklahoma-based store chain Hobby Lobby had challenged a provision in the law, which requires companies to provide contraception coverage in their workers' health insurance plans.  

At this point, even legal experts can't seem to agree on how much--if anything--will change in American workplaces because of this ruling.  

WABE's Denis O'Hayer spoke with Dr. Mark Goldfeder, a senior fellow at the Center for the Study of Law and Religion at Emory University, and a senior lecturer at Emory's School of Law.
