The Dallas-Fort Worth chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-DFW) and Tremain Artaza PLLC today filed an employment discrimination complaint with the Texas Workforce Commission’s Civil Rights Division on behalf of a young Muslim woman who alleges that Dillard’s refused her employment due to her hijab.
The woman applied to work as a salesperson at the Dillard’s department store in Garland, Texas, and wore her hijab to her interview with a department manager. The woman’s employment discrimination complaint asserts that the department manager offered the woman the sales position but told the woman that she would not be permitted to wear her hijab while working on the sales floor.
These Muslims appeal to the laws which they themselves deny. Women are simply banned from 90% of the jobs in Saudi Arabia. It's strange that over a billion Muslims around the world have no qualms with this reality at the heart of Islam.
