This report relates to 1 case(s)

religion or belief discrimination | meaning of philosophical belief | climate change

The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has held that an employee's asserted belief that mankind is heading towards catastrophic climate change and we are under a moral duty to act to mitigate or avoid this is capable of being a philosophical belief for the purposes of the Employment Equality (Religion or Belief) Regulations 2003 (SI 2003/1660).

Mr Nicholson was made redundant and subsequently brought a claim for religion or belief discrimination.
