This section presents several cases related to employment in Great Britain. In E-Zec Medical Transport Services v Gregory, a private ambulance service driver was chosen for redundancy following a downturn. The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) agreed with the tribunal that the dismissal was unfair because the employer had used a defective redundancy process. In Eweida v British Airways plc, the EAT has decided that requiring an employee to remove or conceal a cross worn on a necklace did not constitute religious discrimination.
