Religious discrimination: Refusal to permit Friday lunchtime attendance at mosque was justified

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Cherfi v G4S Security Services Ltd EAT/0379/10, the EAT held that an employer's refusal for business reasons to allow a Muslim security guard to leave the workplace to attend a mosque on Fridays was proportionate and justified. Accordingly, it did not amount to unlawful indirect religious discrimination.
