The ability to discuss ones religious beliefs freely in the workplace has always presented difficulties for employers. The Employment Appeal Tribunal has re-emphasised that disciplinary action for the way an employee shares their religious beliefs can be lawful. Employers are exposed when employees conflicting religious beliefs may lead to allegations of harassment, particularly in the instance of a manager impressing their views/ beliefs on a junior employee. Employers should be careful that action is taken for unwanted conduct and not just religious beliefs as the European Convention protects consensual conversations regarding religious beliefs.
