London Hospital Harassed, Victimised And Discriminated Against Christian Nurse

A UK employment tribunal has found a London hospital harassed and discriminated against a Christian nurse for wearing a cross necklace at work.

It ruled Mary Onuoha had been victimised and forced out of her job after 18 years service.

The hospital claimed the crucifix was a safety risk, while allowing other staff to wear jewellery, turbans and hijabs.

Mrs Onuoha claimed she was treated like a criminal in an attack on her faith.

The Tribunal acknowledged that biblical teaching implored Christians to be open about their faith.

The hospital apologised and agreed it was important that staff feel able to express their beliefs.

Defence lawyers said it was astonishing an experienced nurse was forced to choose between her faith and the profession she loves during a pandemic.
