Gareddu v London Underground Ltd

Employment – Discrimination. The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT), in dismissing the employee's appeal, held that there had been no error of principle or perversity in the employment tribunal's conclusion that the employee had not been genuine in asserting that he required a five-week period over the summer off work, in order to attend religious festivals with his family, as a manifestation of his religion or belief. Accordingly, the EAT held that the tribunal had not erred in rejecting the employee's claim of unlawful indirect religious discrimination.
