Direct Religious Belief Discrimination

Direct Religious Belief Discrimination

Compensation

In the case of Gan Menachem Hendon Ltd v De Groen, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (“EAT”) has held that a Nursery worker was not subjected to direct discrimination on the ground of religion or belief when she was dismissed from a Jewish nursery for cohabiting with her boyfriend.

The Claimant, Zelda De Groen, was employed as a teacher by the Respondent, a Jewish nursery which was run in accordance with ultra-orthodox Chabad principles.
