The EAT has upheld an employment tribunal’s decision to reject a claim of indirect religious discrimination

By February 13, 2017Uncategorized

The EAT has upheld an employment tribunal’s decision to reject a claim of indirect religious discrimination, brought by a Catholic employee, whose request for five consecutive weeks’ holiday in order to attend a series of religious festivals in Sardinia was declined. The employee asserted that the employer’s practice of only allowing a maximum of three consecutive weeks’ of annual leave indirectly discriminated against him on the basis that it prevented him from manifesting his religion by attending the religious festivals. However, do ensure you take advice from Elcons before taking this type of action!
