Nicholson v Grainger Plc

Nov 09

EAT 3 November 2009

The Employment Appeal tribunal has ruled that a belief in man-made climate change, and the resulting moral imperatives, is capable, if genuinely held, of being a philosophical belief for the purposes of the Employment Equality (Religion or Belief) Regulations 2003, so that employees are protected against discrimination on this ground. Burton J rejected the arguments of the employer that beliefs which are political or based on science could not fall within the definition of a philosophical belief for the purposes of the Regulations.

Dinah Rose QC and Ivan Hare represented the successful claimant, instructed by Bindmans LLP.
