Muslim Woman Sues Disneyland for Headscarf Ban14:24 - Friday 27 August 2010 - In Category US News
A Muslim employee at Disneyland is suing the California theme park for telling her not to wear a hijab while she was dealing with customers.
Imane Boudal, 26, had asked if it was OK to wear the headscarf while working as a hostess.
Leigh Shelton, a spokesman for the Unite Here Local 11 union, said Disney initially ignored and then declined the request.
She added: ‘Disney further advised Boudlal that if she refused to remove her hijab, she could either work a back-of-the-house position where any customers would not see her, or else go home.’
