UK Employee Required to Work on Sunday
- Says No - Fired

Stephen Copsey worked as a supervisor for WBB Devon Clays Ltd in King's Lynn, England. When Devon Clays implemented a 7-day work schedule, Copsey, a Christian, argued the schedule conflicted with his respect for Sunday as a day of rest. Devon Clays fired Copsey. He took his grievance to court and lost on two appeals. According to Justice John Mummery, "No sensible alternative to dismissal could be found."
