    Hani Khan, Ex-Abercrombie Employee, Scores Legal Win After Being Fired For Wearing Hijaab!

    Hani Khan, Ex-Abercrombie Employee, Scores Legal Win After Being Fired For Wearing Hijab

    A judge ruled that Abercrombie & Fitch violated federal law when the company fired a Muslim worker at one of its Hollister stores for refusing to take off her hijab.

    Judge Yavonne Gonzalez Rogers ruled in favor of Hani Khan’s request for a summary judgment against Abercrombie, which owns Hollister, last week, according to court papers. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued Abercrombie on behalf of Khan in 2011, after she claimed the company fired her in 2010 for her decision to wear the religiously-mandated headscarf.

    “Reasonable jurors could determine that by offering Khan one option — to remove her hijab despite her religious beliefs — Abercrombie acted with malice, reckless indifference or in the face of a perceived risk that its actions violated federal law,” the judgment reads.

    A trial will begin at the end of September to determine what Abercrombie owes Khan as a result of its illegal actions.

    An Abercrombie spokesman wrote in an e-mail statement that it's company policy not to comment on pending litigation.

    "Abercrombie & Fitch does not discriminate based on religion and we grant religious accommodations when reasonable," the statement reads.

    The judge also denied Abercrombie’s claim that allowing Khan to wear her hijab on the job would present “undue hardship” to the company’s brand and sales. Khan had been wearing her hijab for four months at work before a district manager visited the store and decided it was against the company’s controversial “Look Policy,” which some say goes too far in micromanaging an employee’s dress.

    “Abercrombie must provide more than generalized subjective beliefs or assumptions that deviations from the Look Policy negatively affect the sales or the brand,” the judgment reads. “The evidence presented does not raise a triable issue that a hardship, much less an undue hardship, would have resulted from allowing Khan to wear her hijab.”

    Khan’s complaint is one of many accusing the retailer of discriminating against certain types of employees and customers. Abercrombie found itself in hot water earlier this year after a years-old quote from CEO Mike Jeffries resurfaced, boasting about the company’s “exclusionary” look. In addition, France’s human rights watchdog is investigating Abercrombie over claims the company discriminates in hiring based on appearance.

    This is called justice .... She can get justice in a non-muslim country.

    Unfortunately, in a muslim country like Pakistan... It's easy to kill any one just by putting allegation of "gustakh-e-rasool".

    Wah re musalman tere double standards !

    Mr Kumar:

    State has no business in enforcing the dress code. Less than a century ago Europe tried the same thing with Jews which resulted in the Holocaust. We will not allow the same discrimination, in the name of integration, extended to Muslim. We are very well integrated. Thank you very much.

    There are no Jatois / Tal poors in that country.
    This kind of justice makes super powers.

    There are some people on the forum "Jack of all trades master on none".
    Without any knowledge on the subject they just have to make some comments.
    They believe in Allah and the Last Day, and enjoin right conduct and forbid indecency, and vie one with another in good works. These are of the righteous. (3-114)

    This did not happen in a backward country like france. This happened in California, USA.

    So this is the United states Justice system.

    Muslim communities in the US are very well off. Even those who have to work hard, can make a middle upperclass living.

    Those who do not have immigration status, are the ones who struggle. But since 2001 most of those have either moved to canada and became Canadians, or have went back and some have been deported back. So there are very few lower income families.

    Integrate into the west doesn't mean you give up your religion or identity. I know many women in my family, friends and community that wear Hijab and get along well with everyone in their Jobs , colleges, neighborhoods.

    Great to see her stand up for her rights. We must also show the very same respect to non-Muslims living in Muslim countries, especially the Christians.

    Discrimination is everywhere, but it is good that they have a better justice system. But i think the case also took too long to complete as it took almost 2 years for a simple case which was clearly violations of law.
