Abercrombie Settles Suit over Head Scarves

Will allow Muslim workers to wear them

|

Trendy clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch has agreed to make religious accommodations and allow workers to wear head scarves as part of a settlement of discrimination lawsuits filed in California, lawyers announced Monday.

The retailer will now allow hijabs, the traditional head scarves worn by many Muslim women when in public.

One judge determined the Ohio-based company fired a Muslim worker from a California store, while another judge said it refused to hire another woman in the state because of their refusal to remove their hijabs during work.
