The European Convention on Human Rights applies throughout British Law because of the Human Rights Act 1998. Article 9 protects Freedom of Religion whilst Articles 10 and 11 protect the linked rights of Freedom of Speech and Freedom of association.
Under the Equality Act 2010 it is illegal for employers to discriminate against employees or applicants for jobs because of their Religion or Belief; it is also illegal for public authorities, schools, businesses etc to discriminate against people or organisations because of their religion or belief.
Claims under the Equality Act relating to Employment are brought in the Employment Tribunal and other claims under the Equality Act or claims under the Human Rights Act are brought in the County Court.
The Thomas More Legal Centre may be able to offer free advice or assistance in bringing such claims.
