ABSTRACT
The article reports on cases of religious discrimination of employees. The Employment Equality (Religion or Belief) Regulations 2003 have been in force since December 2003. The regulations gave rise to a low number of claims but the number has been rising with most cases brought by followers of Christianity, Judaism and Islam. The author suggests that care must be taken when drafting policies in areas that may affect one religious group more than another.
