You may remember the case of Nadia Eweida, who some years ago accused BA of discrimination when they didn’t allow her to openly wear a crucifix necklace on top of her uniform. In 2013, the courts decided in favour of the claimant, judging that BA had been unreasonable in their request for the religious symbol to be removed.

Now, Mrs Eweida accuses her employer of harassment in a new claim.

Employers are advised to consider the following:

  • No news isn’t always good news. You have a responsibility to proactively encourage fair and equal treatment of your staff.
  • Make sure that any new policies you are planning to introduce have been thoroughly scrutinised.
  • Regularly review your anti-discrimination measures and educate staff in their practical application.
