The Burkini debate of summer was reheated over the weekend when an Australian woman was threatened with arrests for insisting on wearing a "Burkini" on a French beach. The ban, introduced by some French mayors, has been defended on the grounds that the beachwear offends the French value of Liberty but has proven more than controversial. Some are quick to point to the irony of defending Liberty by telling women what to wear. The debate well represents the issues employers face in the UK when values collide. If one worker objects to working alongside another on religious grounds which view should prevail? As with UK employment law the cartoonists favour the view that promotes Liberty. After all will a Burkini ban really help empower women or will it simply prevent them from enjoying the beach?
