Religious Diversity in the European Workplace
January 13, 2011
Religion continues to make its way into the amalgam of European workplaces. For some members of Europe's increasingly diverse workforce, deeply rooted religious beliefs and practices cannot simply be checked in during work hours.
In recent years, employees have claimed accommodation of their religious beliefs and practices before the national courts and the European Court of Human Rights. Various jurisdictions have reached divergent results, with judicial decisions affecting the public perception of religious conflicts in the context of labor relations. Because religious claims potentially conflict with other rights and interests in the workplace, a delicate balance must be struck between a multitude of factors, perspectives, and values. The question is what judges, policy makers, and employers managing religious pluralism in the workplace can learn from the experiences in other countries.
With a view to bring together junior and senior scholars from a range of disciplines and practitioners to exchange experiences and ideas, an international symposium is being organized at the Law Faculty of the Catholic University of Leuven on Thursday January 13, 2011.
