This paper deals with the question of whether an individual should ever be dismissed from their workplace for conduct outside the workplace and working hours, with specific reference to religious workplaces. It explores the notion of whether there is anything that sets religious workplaces apart from other places of employment, allowing for a greater degree of control over the behaviour of its employees. It is argued that there is no special duty of loyalty attributable to religious workplaces and, given that individuals find their right to express their religion curtailed by the courts regularly, the autonomy granted to religious institutions goes against the fundamental concept of human rights.
