He makes some good points that religions and religionists should not receive any special treatment or privileges, but then seems to conclude under point 14 that employers should not normally have the right to ban employees from wearing religious symbols whilst at work!

Why not? Surely most people would agree that an employer should have the right to require that its employees do not wear a swastika, if it feels it doesn't represent the company or portray the right image, so why should they not be able to do the same with any religious symbol?
