Employment and Religious Freedoms

Published on September 21, 2020 by David FordDavid Ford

The intersection between religion and employment is complex and brings with it many challenges. David Ford’s paper Employment and Religious Freedoms, presented at a Law of Religious Institutions Conference on 15 September 2020, considers a number of issues religious institutions need to deal with when employing and managing staff, including:

  • Faith as a key selection criterion for appointment and how the exemptions in anti-discrimination law apply.
  • Employment contracts, codes of conduct and statement of faith statements.
  • Holding views contrary to the employer’s beliefs and ethos and sharing them outside the workplace, including on social media.
