Case Comparisons: Why Nadia Eweida won her religious discrimination case over wearing cross at work
Tuesday 15 January 2013
The 60-year-old was sent home by BA in 2006 for wearing a cross. She returned to work after BA changed its uniform policy. ECHR judges said BA’s amendment of the uniform code showed it was not crucial.
The nurse, 57, was moved to a desk job by Devon and Exeter NHS hospital after refusing to remove a crucifix. ECHR judges rejected her claims, deeming it a health-and-safety issue.
The counsellor, 51, lost his job with Relate after saying he felt he could not offer therapy to same-sex couples. The ECHR ruled against him.
The registrar, 51, lost her job with Islington Council because she said she could not conduct same-sex civil partnerships. The ECHR said the council’s action was “legitimate”.
