Stedman v UK

In Stedman v UK [1997] 23 EHRR 168 ECHR, the European Commission of Human Rights held that the dismissal of a woman for refusing on religious grounds to accept a new contract that would have required her to work Sundays was not an interference with her freedom of religion or other rights under the European Convention on Human Rights.

Mrs Stedman was an assistant manager in a travel agency.
