Arab-American Women Sue McDonald's

The Arab American News, Posted: Aug 01, 2008

DEARBORN, MI Two Muslim women from Detroit are suing McDonald's for rejecting their employment
application because they wore hijabs. The lawsuit alleges that the women were denied jobs based on their
religious beliefs and dress. The manager told both plaintiffs that they weren't going to work at McDonald's unless they removed their head scarves. The McDonald's at Ford Road in Dearborn caters to numbers of Arab Americans and serves halal chicken. Backers of the suit asked McDonald's to review its dress code policy and make provisions to accommodate the religious attire of employees.
