Muslim Woman Sues Abercrombie & Fitch Over Hijab Picture of woman at link June 27, 2011 S.F., CA. Hani Khan, a 20 year old Muslim woman and college student studying political science is suing the clothing giant Abercrombie & Fitch for discrimination against her religion. Ms. Khan was working as a stockroom clerk and was terminated because she refused to remove her head scarf while working. Ms. Khan was employed as a stockroom clerk and four months after she was hired a district, human resource manager asked her to stop wearing her hijab at work and she refused. She was first suspended then terminated for disobeying the company "look policy" which is a natural classic American style. Ms. Khan maintains that she was told she could wear her head piece and believes her religious rights have been violated. Her attorney says, she is suing to change the company look policy and for unspecified damages. The lawsuit alleges violations of federal and state civil rights and employment laws. The company has said it does not tolerate discrimination. Abercrombie has said, "We comply with the law regarding reasonable religious accommodation, and we will continue to do so," said Rocky Robbins, the company's general counsel. We are confident that when this matter is tried, a jury will find that we have fully complied with the law." Abercrombie & Fitch have been sued by two other Muslim women in the past. In 2009 a 17 year old Muslim woman sued and said shed been rejected for employment because she was wearing a hijab. In 2008 the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit against the company for another Muslim woman stating the same reason.
