Eweida v British Airways Plc

This report relates to 1 case(s)

The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has upheld an employment tribunal finding that a Christian employee, who was sent home when she insisted on wearing a cross visibly, in breach of the employer's uniform policy, did not suffer indirect discrimination.

British Airways Plc (BA) had a uniform policy that allowed jewellery or religious items to be visible only if wearing the item was a mandatory scriptural requirement and it could not be concealed.
