    Chondol v Liverpool City Council EAT/0298/08 (2 other reports)

    • Religious discrimination: Dismissal for promoting religious beliefs was not discriminatory

      Date:
      11 May 2009

      In Chondol v Liverpool City Council EAT/0298/08, the EAT held that the employment tribunal was correct to draw a distinction between the employee's religious beliefs on the one hand and inappropriate promotion of those beliefs on the other. Since the employer would have reacted in the same way irrespective of the view (religious or otherwise) that was being promoted, the employee had not been treated less favourably on grounds of his religion or belief.

    • Chondol v Liverpool City Council

      Date:
      12 February 2009

      The Employment Appeal Tribunal has held that a social worker who was dismissed for promoting his religious beliefs to service users did not suffer religion or belief discrimination.
