The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) have expressed discomfort with the decisions in Eweida v British Airways plc and Ladele and McFarlane v United Kingdom and is intervening before the European Court of Human Rights. It is arguing that in these cases, the courts have interpreted the law on religion and belief too narrowly and have failed to take proper account of Article 9(2) of the European Convention on Human Rights. The EHRC contends that the bar has been set too high for religion or belief discrimination claims to succeed. It is putting the case that an employer should take steps to accommodate an employee’s religious requirements.
