No FRILLS Spanish Supreme Court Decision - Nurses Uniforms

Antonio Elcarte
Lexology published a report by Antonio Elcarte from which we quote:

"Dress codes have been in the spotlight recently following a ruling in Spain that nurses do not have to wear skirts.

Earlier this year the Spanish Supreme Court upheld a claim brought by female nurses at a Spanish hospital that they should be allowed to wear the same uniform as their male colleagues, i.e. trousers rather than skirts, aprons and caps. The nurses claimed that their employer’s uniform policy was discriminatory and also breached health and safety regulations."

It now remains for England to decide that religious uniforms have no place in mental health hospitals. Who dares wins.
