Firing of Jesus-loving call centre worker found kosher
Published on: 20 Apr 2011 15:39 CET
The QVC home shopping service decided to fire the 29-year-old in early 2010, but a labour court in Bochum later ruled that the man’s religious faith was more important than the company’s right to hire and fire who they wished.
QVC appealed to a higher court, which upheld the firing and ruled that the employee would not have had a crisis of conscience had he omitted his unique farewell to customers.
The man can still appeal his case to higher power – Germany’s Federal Labour Court.
