Muslim worker loses Tesco alcohol claim

A Derby Muslim who sued Tesco for religious discrimination after he was asked to handle crates of alcohol has lost his case.

Mohammed Ahmed, who worked in a warehouse, said the job was against his Islamic beliefs. The 32-year-old, of Upper Dale Road, Normanton, also accused Tesco of victimisation and harassment during a three-day employment tribunal in Birmingham.

His job at the supermarket giant's Lichfield depot involved the transportation of various goods, including alcoholic drinks, on fork-lift trucks.

The Saudi Arabian national told the tribunal he was not informed that he would be handling alcohol when he started the job last year. He said he was considering appealing against the decision after being told his legal action had failed.

He said:"It's not fair but what can I do? They were not taking into account my religious beliefs. I will consult with solicitors."
