Update: Amrit Lalji a Hindu woman sacked from her job at Heathrow last month for wearing a nose stud as a religious symbol has been reinstated.

Further to my post on 18th September 2007 I was very pleased to read that in the words of Tahir Bhatti, speaking for the union: "GMB is pleased to have been able to assist Mrs Lalji in this matter and welcomes Eurest's decision that she is reinstated in her position immediate and without detriment." Mrs Lalji's employers, Eurest, said her sacking had been a mistake based on a misinterpretation of its own regulations.

Thank goodness common sense has prevailed in this story. A just and happy ending to a situation that should never have occurred.
