British Airways has asked a Christian member of staff to conceal her cross necklace because it contravenes the company's uniform policy....
Heathrow check-in worker Nadia Eweida is on unpaid leave after refusing to cover up her cross necklace.
"I believe that it is a very important issue on the matter of expressing Christianity and employees having their say in the way they express their faith," she said.
British Airways says all jewellery and religious symbols on chains must be worn under the uniform.
But it makes an exception for Sikh turbans and Muslim hijabs because they cannot be covered up.
The airline says: "British Airways does recognise that uniformed employees may wish to wear jewellery including religious symbols. These items can be worn, underneath the uniform." [Link]
