Barrister Adam Wagner, who specialises in human rights, has played down the wider significance of BA worker Nadia Eweida's victory at the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR):
So a narrow, fact-based win for one Christian applicant in Strasbourg but no major points of principle from Strasbourg http://t.co/cS9OphRY
Important point about judgments is that European Court of Human Rights has not criticised UK anti-discrimination laws http://t.co/cS9OphRY
European Court of Human Rights didn't rule religious symbols trumped corporate image. Wasn't convinced corporate image harmed in this case
He added that the ECHR judgment now means if an employer wants to prevent an employee from wearing a religious symbol for corporate image purposes, it must prove that its image has been negatively affected.
