Religious liberty – BA worker in fresh legal claim

October 2018

A British Airways employee who won a legal battle in 2013 to wear a cross on a necklace at work has launched a fresh tribunal claim against the airline for ‘victimisation and harassment’.

According to reports in the national press Nadia Eweida — whose landmark victory against BA came at the European Court of Human Rights — has freshly claimed ongoing harassment since her ‘whistleblowing’.

She is now pursuing a new employment tribunal claim against her managers, whom she has accused of victimisation, harassment and punishment in the wake of the publicity of her former case.

At the time of going to press, no Christian legal organisation is understood to be formally supporting her claim. Ms Eweida is therefore using a crowdfunding platform to help with the estimated £30,000 in legal fees. Ms Eweida says she hopes to win compensation, a declaration and recommendations from her claim, which is due before Watford Tribunal Hearing Centre on 26 Octoberfor a preliminary hearing.
