A Polish branch of home furniture retailer IKEA is facing a public backlash and an official inquiry, after it fired a worker who refused to support and posted a denunciation of a pro-LGBT corporate event.
A man named in Polish media as Tomasz K., a long-term employee at IKEA’s Krakow store, was recently dismissed after he’d posted a quote from the Bible in response to a notice on the retailer’s intranet that advertised a gay pride event. The verses in question denounced homosexuality. The fired worker then filed a lawsuit accusing the furniture retailer of religious discrimination. His move immediately drew the attention of the predominant and devout Catholic community in Poland.
“I regard the [case] as discrimination and a violation of freedom of conscience and religion,” the country’s vice-minister of justice Marcin Romanovsky wrote in a statement.
On Friday, Poland’s justice minister Zbigniew Ziobro announced he had ordered the country’s prosecutor’s office to probe the case. He described the incident as “unacceptable” and “absolutely scandalous, if confirmed.”
