Shirley Chaplin

Shirley Chaplin, an NHS nurse, was faced with disciplinary action after being told that she was no longer permitted to wear her cross while at work on health and safety grounds. The NHS Trust indicated that they would permit exemptions in their uniform policy for religious and cultural symbols that were ‘mandatory’ within the religion. An employment found that she had not been discriminated against on the basis of her religious beliefs. Mrs Chaplin's case will now be heard by the European Court of Human Rights.
