  • Beliefs such as Paganism and Humanism are included as well as the better-known religions
  • People who do not have religious or similar beliefs, e.g. atheists, are included
  • Political beliefs are specifically excluded from the Regulations
  • Employers are not obliged to accept unreasonable disruption to their activities to meet religious needs.
