Text and Context
The interactions between religious belief and employment law touch on a wide variety of issues, ranging from basic questions about the definitions of ‘religion’ and ‘belief’—and, indeed, of ‘employment’—to issues such as time off for religious observance, religious dress in the workplace and the extent to which an employer can impose its religious values on its workforce. This monograph looks at the major issues of religion in relation to employment law in the United Kingdom, primarily by reference to the recent case-law.
An Introduction to the Case-Law
The purpose of the study is to provide an overview of some of the current issues and problems surrounding the law relating to employment by religious organisations and the manifestation of religion in the workplace. Because the complexity of the law means that individual outcomes in disputed cases are often depend heavily on the facts, it does so primarily by examining recent case-law.
