Religious expression in the workplace and the contested role of law

Time: 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Venue: MA221, Council Room University of Wolverhampton, Wulfruna Street WV1 1LY

The first title in Routledge’s new Religion and Law series, edited by Professor Norman Doe, Andrew Hambler's book addresses the role the law plays in resolving conflicts in the workplace arising when employees wish to express their religious beliefs in various ways – and when employers try to stop them.

The book considers the definition and underlying motives of religious expression, exploring the different ways it may impact the workplace (e.g. through dress, speech or conscientious objection to certain work tasks). Andrew identifies principled responses to workplace religious expression within a liberal state, comparing this to the law applying in England and Wales and its interpretation by courts and tribunals.

The book determines the extent to which freedom of religious expression for the individual enjoys legal protection in the workplace in England and Wales, and asks whether there is a case for changing the law to strengthen that protection.

The topical subject of this book will be of interest to organisational policy-makers as well as legal and industrial relations academics and those with an interest in religious liberty.
