Sarah Beeby of SNR Denton UK LLP discusses the difficult area of religious and belief discrimination in the workplace, drawing on four landmark cases being decided by the ECHR. She offers advice and some practical steps for institutions on how to address and manage such issues.
Recently, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) heard the cases of four Christians arguing for their right to religious freedom at work:
Eweida and Chaplin v UK (application numbers 48420/10 and 59842/10)
Ladele and McFarlane v UK (application numbers 51671/10 and 36516/10).
These could potentially be landmark cases where the rulings have a significant impact on employers.
