Dr Sheila Matthews

Dr Sheila Matthews was dismissed from her role on the local authority’s adoption panel after requesting to refrain from voting when homosexual couples were being considered by the panel as potential adoptive parents. Dr Matthews resigned from her job as a paediatrician and brought a claim against Northamptonshire County Council on the grounds that she had been discriminated against because of her faith. However, Dr Matthew’s case for religious discrimination was rejected by the employment tribunal.
