Abercrombie & Fitch hit with Hijab discrimination lawsuit again
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has filed a discrimination lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch alleging the brand refused to hire a woman because of her Muslim headscarf. For those in need of a refresher, this is the second time they’ve been sued for the same issue.
In June 2008, a Muslim teenager was refused a job at one of the company’s stores because her hijab — or headscarf — violated Abercrombie’s “Look Policy.” And yes, the interviewer actually told her that. The EEOC filed suit on her behalf — the outcome of which is still unknown.
What’s scary, though, is how similar the last case is to this one.
