The article reports on the research by Acas on workplace discrimination in Great Britain. It showed that religion and belief employment tribunal claims included difficulties over working hours and time off for religious practices. Chairwoman Rita Donaghy said the headlines have all been about dress codes, whereas issues on the ground are about time off and flexible working for attending religious occasions. The study also revealed that bullying experienced ranged from verbal abuse to physical attacks.
