Faith dress code appeal fails

The courts have again rejected the appeal of the British Airways worker who wore a cross in contravention of BA's uniform code.

Like the employment appeal tribunal, the Court of Appeal rejected the idea that wearing a cross was an obligation of the faith and asserted again that the right to hold a faith does not extend to manifesting it wherever and whenever one wishes.

In fact, the court went further and rejected the idea that such an interference with faith was disproportionate. This is entirely consistent with the judgements on Islamic dress.
