Industry supports victory of BA worker claiming religious discrimination



Christian BA employee should have won a human rights case against her right to wear a cross, according to TravelMole readers.


A massive 95% agreed with the European Court of Human Rights' decision last week that Nadia Eweida's rights had been violated under Article 9 of the European Convention.


She took her case to the European courts after a UK employment tribunal found she had not been subjected to religious discrimination.


The British Airways employee said she was asked to stop wearing her white gold cross visibly, see previous story.


Thousands voted in our poll asking, "BA Christain employee wins human rights case - correct result?"


Only five per cent felt the result was wrong.

    Imagine how much money could have been saved if the 'people's verdict' had been the agreed outcome before this matter was heard at the European Court? It goes to show that, just like used to be the case in the USA, whenever disputes arise the beneficiaries are likely to include solicitors! One would think it is blindingly obvious she was right.
