    Simon v Brimham Associates [1987] IRLR 307 CA (0 other reports)

In Simon v Brimham Associates (6.3.87) EOR14B, the Court of Appeal holds that a Jewish applicant who refused to state his religion at a job interview was not discriminated against when he was told that the question was asked because "if you were of the Jewish faith, it might preclude your selection for the job", since that explanation for the question about religion would have been given to any applicant who had been offended by its being asked.
