Philly security firm sued over Muslim head scarf

The EEOC is suing ABM Security Services, which provides guards for the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, for religious discrimination after an employee claimed she was forced to choose between keeping her job and wearing her traditional Muslim head covering.

ABM hired Tahira, a devout Mus­lim, and she reported for training wearing a khimar, a head covering worn by some Muslim women. Her trainer told her to take off the scarf, but she refused, explaining that her religion required it. An ABM representative told her that she could not work at the convention center while wearing the khimar and sent her home.

Tahira filed an EEOC complaint, noting that ABM never discussed accommodations that would allow her to perform the job and observe her religious beliefs. EEOC mediation attempts failed, and now, barring a settlement, the lawsuit will go to trial.

  2. Hi there,

    Is this islamophophia real? Who invented this word? And how many cases of attacks, beheadings, suicidekilligs, terrorist attacks by non muslims is perpetrated on muslims?

    Is there also a website which can educate muslims who misinterpreted your divine teachings in the quran and hadiths, and want to become martyrs by killing non muslims.

    What about anti semitism? Is there more anti jewish cases than islamophobia cases? And who are the perpetraters of anti jewish attacks?

    Is there any any selfreflection in muslim community???

Have your say!
