A Muslim Jiffy Lube employee in Virginia will now be allowed to wear her religion-mandated headscarf to work after an Islamic civil rights group intervened on her behalf, the advocacy group announced in an April 13 press release on U.S. Newswire.
Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said in the release the woman was employed at a Jiffy Lube in Leesburg, VA.
According to the release, she was told she could not wear her hijab because of a "no hats" policy, but the CAIR intervened and company officials agreed to allow the headscarf and apologized to the Muslim employee. [Link]
