UK: British Airways Clerk Claims Religious Discrimination

LONDON – Airport check-in clerk Nadia Eweida, went to London’s High Court on January 19 in a bid to force British Airways to admit it was wrong in demanding she stop wearing a crucifix at work, the AP reported on January 20.  Nadia Eweida became the center of a national debate over religious symbols in public life when she was sent home in November 2006 for refusing to comply with rules banning employees from wearing visible religious symbols.  British Airways has denied the allegation of religious discrimination.
