British Airways Worker Loses Religious Discrimination Case for Wearing Cross

A British Airways worker who had sued the airline because she was told to hide the cross she was wearing on a necklace, lost her case when a tribunal ruled she was not discriminated against for her religious beliefs.  She took an unpaid leave after she was asked to remove the necklace, but returned several months later when the airline changed its policy to allow the wearing of religious symbols.

BA had offered the woman GBP 8,500 to settle the case, but she refused.  She ended up with, as we say, bupkus.

She may continue with the case, adding
“It’s not over until God says it’s over."  Sure.
