Christian CEO wins religious discrimination case

Share this:

An Employment Tribunal has ruled that Scotland’s biggest grant-making trust unlawfully discriminated against its CEO because of his Christian views on marriage.

According to the Tribunal judgment, Ferguson was unfairly dismissed by The Robertson Trust. It also found that he had been subjected to religious discrimination by the Trust and its Chairwoman, Shonaig Macpherson, for believing that marriage is exclusively between a man and woman.

Ferguson was dismissed from The Robertson Trust in March 2020 after Macpherson objected to Stirling Free Church, where he is an elder, renting Trust premises.
