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.
He claimed unfair dismissal and unlawful religious discrimination. He lost both claims at a Liverpool employment tribunal and appealed to the EAT. He has lost again (on both counts).
In regard to the unfair dismissal claim, the EAT found nothing wrong in the original tribunal's conclusion.
