A Windsorite who owns a cutting-edge London, England hair salon says a lawsuit against her, for not hiring a hijab-wearing Muslim, will bankrupt her if it's successful.
Sarah DesRosiers, who runs Wedge hair salon, is being sued by Bushra Noah, 19. Noah, a Muslim, said she was a victim of discrimination after failing to land a job at the salon.
DesRosiers said she wasn't being discriminatory. She said Noah, who refused to remove her headscarf, wasn't right for the job because she needs employees to show off their "funky" hairstyles to the public.
"Someone that can model their hair in the style of the salon, something that represents my team - more alternative," said DesRosiers, 32. "The display of hair is of the utmost importance when the client walks in the salon. You create an atmosphere. The stylist would model the style of the salon. Because she was unwilling to display her hair, it would not work." [Link]
