Case 289 - Builder quits job after being ordered to remove flags put up to support England in the World Cup

Issue

A furious builder has quit his job in London after he was ordered to remove two flags which he put up to support England in the World Cup.

Panel decision

Health and safety law does not stop anyone supporting their team and celebrating major sporting events. It seems that a key reason for taking these England flags down was that workers of other nationalities might also want to do the same in support of their own national teams but its difficult to see why that would be a problem and certainly not a health and safety one!!
