Christian nurse takes crucifix row to tribunal


there seems to be confusion here over what the issues really are: If the Trust states in it's uniform policy that necklaces cannot be worn when in uniform, that's one thing, if they say that they cannot be visibly worn then that is another. The issue of infection control is nulified if the necklace is inside the uniform itself. Entrapment is another thing altogether. If an individual choses to wear a necklace he/she is aware of the risks involved and the employer can't be held liable provided they have given the appropriate advice. The religious issue is complete rot and is just being used to stir up feelings on the matter. Mrs Chaplin, there is no requirement in the Bible (or as far as I know any other Christian text) which states an individual must wear a crucifix ~ it's your with it!
