You may recall previous blogs on the case of a BA worker who brought a discrimination claim against BA for not allowing her to wear a crucifix at work.

Nadia Eweida lost her appeal in the Court of Appeal which ruled that no discrimination had taken place.  She has now decided to take her case to the European Court of Human Rights since she has taken the matter as far as she can in the UK Courts.  It will take some months for us to hear of the decision. 

As reported previously following her unpaid leave BA amended its uniform code in 2007 to allow staff to display faith symbols and she returned to work.  Her losses are therefore limited really to some pay and an injury to feelings award.  Watch this space for the next instalment.
