    Ahmad v Inner London Education Authority [1977] ICR 490 CA (0 other reports)

In Ahmad v Inner London Education Authority [1977] ICR 490 CA, the Court of Appeal held that the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion established by Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights does not entitle an employee to be absent from work for the purpose of religious worship in breach of contract.

Mr Ahmad, a primary school teacher and a devout Muslim, insisted on taking time off work every Friday afternoon to attend prayers at a nearby mosque.
