LUXEMBOURG – In a surprise move, the European Court of Justice has said companies in Europe are allowed to impose ban on their employees from wearing scarf in office.
According to detail, now with this new court order, European companies can prevent their employees to wear headscarves.
But, the apex court in Europe said such a policy will be equal for the employees where they could wear an uncontroversial dress.
The court also said in its verdicts that such bans cannot be imposed merely on the request of customers.
This is the first decision of the court with regards to headscarves in offices.
The case was initiated in the court when a receptionist was fired from the G Four S Company in Belgium on wearing hijab.
The Belgian court has sent the matter to the European Court of Justice.
