Woman Appeals Christian Symbols Ruling

Ad Feedback

A Christian woman is appealing a ruling that British Airways did not discriminate against her when it asked her to stop wearing a cross visibly at work two years ago.

Nadia Eweida, 56, wants to overturn an employment tribunal ruling that she did not suffer religious discrimination.

The tribunal ruled that Eweida was not discriminated against, even though she was asked to conceal her plain silver cross necklace while other BA employees were allowed to wear Muslim veils and Sikh turbans.

The employee now wants to make sure Christians everywhere are free to "show their faith."

Eweida's claim is that the airline had "ruled for one minority group but not the other."

Sarah Moore, counsel for Eweida, told the hearing that the policy put her and other Christians at a "particular disadvantage in comparison to the adherents of other faiths," according to the BBC.

British Airways has since changed its uniform policy to allow crosses to be worn.
