The European Union’s top court ruled Tuesday that employers are allowed to ban employees from wearing head scarves provided that it is part of a general policy that covers all religious and political symbols. The court addressed two separate incidents where a Muslim woman was fired for wearing a headscarf. Both women alleged that their employer has discriminated against them for wearing a hijab to the office. In both cases the judges concluded that, “An internal rule . . . which prohibits the visible wearing of any political, philosophical or religious sign does not constitute direct discrimination.” Lower courts will be left to settle the disputes in question.
