• BA’s policy on “No visible jewellery” not discriminatory

    On Friday 12 February 2010 the Court of Appeal gave its decision in what has become known as the “BA Cross Case.”

    Ms Eweida an employee of BA, complained that BA’s policy of prohibiting visible jewelery indirectly discriminated against her on religious grounds as she was therefore unable to wear a small visible Christian cross. The Court rejected the argument that one individual person could be the subject of indirect discrimination and noted that when faced with conflicting responses to a particular policy from people of different religions a blanket ban may sometimes be the safest solution.
