Cameron vows to 'change the law' to allow religious symbols at work
Prime Minister David Cameron has said he will "change the law" to allow people to wear religious symbols in the workplace, after he was asked during today's Prime Minister's Questions (PMQs) about the Eweida case.
Nadia Eweida, a former British Airways employee, is soon to have her religious discrimination case heard at the European Court of Human Rights. Eweida was sent home by BA for wearing a visible crucifix around her neck in breach of the company’s dress code, and claimed religious discrimination and harassment. So far, she has been unsuccessful at the employment tribunal, employment appeal tribunal, and Court of Appeal.
During PMQs, Conservative MP David Davis said to Cameron: "On 4 September, the European Court of Human Rights is hearing the case of Miss Nadia Eweida, the lady who lost her job at BA for wearing a crucifix as a mark of her Christianity.
