In light of the recent decisions of the European Court of Human Rights in the cases of Eweida, Ladele, Chaplin and McFarlane, the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has publish guidance on discrimination on the grounds of religion or belief.  Click here for a link to the EHRC guidance.

The EHRC guidance aims to tackle thorny issues such as:

  • How will an employer know if a religion or belief is genuine?
  • What kind of religion or belief requests will an employer need to consider?
  • What steps should an employer take to deal with a request?
  • What questions should employers ask to ensure their approach to a religion or belief request is justified?
  • Do employees now have a right to promote their particular religion or belief when at work?
  • Can employees refrain from work duties?

If you are faced with a situation involving potential discrimination on the grounds of religion or belief the EHRC guidance is a useful practical starting point.  However, you are also welcome to contact our team, who are experts in this area of the law.
