Identity Suppression – Is stopping an employee from flying their own national Flag a forcible suppression of national identity?

It has been reported that some employers like Royal Mail and Weatherspoon’s have told their employees that they are not to fly their own national flags or show any other visible support for their own national teams.  

The Workers of England Union would like to remind everyone that such a policy by any employer is likely to be a breach of employees’ rights under the Equality Act 2010, which prohibits discrimination on the grounds of National Origin, Nationality or National Identity.  Any claimant who is successful in bringing such a claim would be entitled to thousands of pounds worth of compensation.    

If you have suffered such discrimination the Workers of England Union would be interested to hear from you.

 Yours sincerely
