Former Mulberry employee loses belief discrimination case

A former Mulberry employee who refused to sign a copyright agreement because she held a “philosophical belief” that she should own the rights to her work has lost her case at the Employment Appeal Tribunal.

In Gray v Mulberry Company (Design), Ms Gray claimed she had been discriminated against on the grounds of her philosophical belief. However, the EAT held that it could not be considered capable of protection under the Equality Act 2010.
