Was the Claimant’s dismissal following a televised interview, during which he expressed, because of his Christian beliefs that adoption by a same sex-couple could not be in the best interests of a child, on grounds of religious discrimination?
No held the EAT in Page v NHS Trust Development Authority. The Claimant was dismissed because of the manner in which he had expressed his beliefs i.e. during a televised interview without permission of the Trust and not because of his Christian beliefs.
The Trust conducted a lengthy investigation and disciplinary process. Do you always do the same?
