British Airways worker asks European court to rule on wearing cross at work

Catholic World News - October 22, 2010

A British Airways worker has asked the European Court of Human Rights to weigh her discrimination case, which she began when she was ordered not to wear a cross around her neck while she was on the job.

Nadia Eweida, who left her job at British Airways in 2006, after she was told that she could not wear her cross. Although her discrimination case was rejected by British courts, she was eventually re-hired by British Airways for work in a different position. She is now seeking compensation for lost wages.
