Disciplinary action for imposing religious views was not discriminatory


The EAT has upheld a tribunal’s decision that disciplinary action taken against a Christian senior manager for imposing her religious views on a Muslim junior employee was not discriminatory.

The junior employee had complained that she felt that the manager was ‘grooming’ her by praying with her and inviting her to church services. The employer was entitled to deal with this as serious misconduct, namely the blurring of professional boundaries and the subjection of a junior colleague to improper pressure and unwanted conduct.
