In May 2019, an IKEA worker published two Bible quotes in his workplace’s intranet after his employer instituted a day-long event entitled “solidarity with LGBT excluded persons day”. The man was fired for the posts.
The IKEA human resources director, who made the decision to fire the worker, has now been charged with restricting the employee’s rights and discriminating against their beliefs.
