About Religious Freedom, Religious Discrimination and the Workplace

This book considers the extent to which religious interests are protected at work, with particular reference to the protection against religious discrimination provided by the Equality Act 2010. It establishes a principled basis for determining the proper scope of religious freedom at work, and considers the interaction of freedom of religion with the right not to be discriminated against on grounds of religion and belief.

The book locates the debates surrounding religion and belief equality within a philosophical and theoretical framework in which the importance of freedom of religion and its role within the workplace are fully debated.

This second edition is fully revised and updated in the light of recent case law from the UK and the European Court of Human Rights, which deals with religious discrimination and freedom of religion.

Review of the First Edition
...a thoughtful and wide-ranging survey, enhanced by a useful section on comparison with other jurisdictions...It is not possible within the confines of a book review to do justice to the rich and fascinating range of arguments propounded in this work.
” –  Gwyneth Pitt, Industrial Law Journal

“If you have any professional or academic interest whatsoever in the interactions between employment law and religious manifestation, Professor Vickers' book is a must-read.” –  Frank Cranmer, Law and Religion Blog

“Overall, the book delivers a solid overview of the challenges arising from the conflicting rights and interests related to religion in the context of employment. It gives the reader insight into possible solutions in specific situations. Therefore, it is a must-read for anybody who wants to deepen their knowledge on the theoretical foundations and interconnections of religious freedom and discrimination.” –  Erika Kovacs, Vienna University of Economics and Business, European Journal of Social Security
