Chondol v Liverpool City Council EAT - distinction between religious belief and inappropriate promotion of that belief

Mr Chondol was a social worker. He was also a committed Christian. He was dismissed in May 2007, after proper disciplinary proceedings, on grounds which included that, contrary to instructions, he had promoted his religious beliefs to service users.
