Cross about work

The headline in today's Telegraph (10 March 2012) warns of an impending ECHR case in which the claimants want to establish the right to wear a cross at work, as a symbol of their religious faith.

A few questions:

- should the state have anything to do with workplace clothing regulations?

- if so, should it allow exemptions on health and safety grounds, or for any other reason?

- if so, who is going to decide what is a genuine symbol, or someone taking the mickey?

- what of religious institutions such as faith schools?
