5 February 2024 Landmark judgement – “anti-Zionism”

From the website of Rahman Lowe solicitors, “In a significant triumph, Rahman Lowe, the legal representative for Professor David Miller, announced a landmark decision on Monday  5th February 2024 in one of the most closely monitored Employment Tribunal cases of 2023-2024. Prof. Miller successfully claimed discrimination based on his philosophical belief that Zionism is inherently racist, imperialist, and colonial, a protected characteristic under the Equality Act 2010, alongside a finding of unfair dismissal. This judgment establishes for the first time ever that anti-Zionist beliefs are protected in the workplace. In the comprehensive 108-page judgment delivered today (see here) by Regional Employment Judge Rohan Pirani, the Bristol Employment Tribunal ruled in favour of Prof. Miller, establishing that he had experienced discrimination based on his philosophical belief and had been unfairly dismissed by Bristol University.” click here.
