If I was sacked for taking a holiday when they were short staffed because it was a religious festival, someone who took a jewish festival would previously have had more chance of getting it to a job tribunal than a druid taking Beltane.
Religious persecution laws will have more bite with this definition too, I suppose?
I notice that England is specifically mentioned too. Is this a law that will have to be passed separately by the other union parliaments then?
