Government overturns turban workplace rule
A new clause in the Deregulation Bill 2015 will mean Sikhs across the UK will no longer face the prospect of disciplinary action for wearing turbans in the workplace. The clause will extend the exemption applied to the construction industry to all workplaces. Turban-wearing Sikhs will now have the right to choose not to wear head protection and will be exempt from legal requirements to wear a safety helmet in the majority of workplaces.https://www.gov.uk/government/news/government-overturns-turban-workplace-rule
