MUSLIM WOMAN WINS MAJOR LEGAL BATTLE AGAINST ABERCROMBIE & FITCH OVER HER HIJAB

Posted by Brian


A former Abercrombie & Fitch (A&F) employee has won a major discrimination case against the popular clothing company. TheBlaze first reported about Umme-Hani Khan’s lawsuit back in 2011. As you may recall, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued on the 19-year-old Muslim’s behalf.

Throughout the legal battle, Khan has claimed that she was fired from a Hollister store branch in San Mateo, Calif., after refusing to remove her hijab (Islamic headscarf). She has been battling the company over the incident, taking aim at the so-called “look policy,” which apparently shuns the article of religious clothing.
On Monday, U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers agreed with the young woman, ruling that anti-discrimination laws were violated in her firing.
