This paper consists of a short introductory section looking at the role of religious expression and religion as a whole within the employment sphere, in the context of a transition from a state of religious tolerance to a state of multi-culturalism. It is followed by a substantial section giving a synoptic picture of the current state of U.K. law concerning religious expression in the workplace. The paper concludes by drawing together some thematic ideas about the implications of a move from tolerance to multiculturalism for the resolution of questions that arise regarding proportionality and hierarchy in protecting against discrimination on different grounds.
