Dr Tali Argov overlooked for promotion, stripped of her privileges and ill-treated at social gatherings, after converting from Judaism to Christianity.

Dr Tali Argov, Israel-born Oxford university lecturer, says she was overlooked for promotion, stripped of her privileges and ill-treated at social gatherings, after converting to Christianity. The Daily Telegraph quotes her as saying at the Reading Employment Tribunal in July 2010: “It is my belief that, following firstly the conversion of my husband and then the conversion of myself, the treatment which I received as an employee of the Respondents was very different and a number of incidents occurred which led me to believe that I was being discriminated against.” For further information please visit: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/religion/7914408/Oxford-University-lecturer-discriminated-against-after-converting-to-Christianity.html
