Retailer failed to prove it would suffer undue hardship by accommodating beliefs of muslim worker

The Houston Chronicle is reporting; Abercrombie & Fitch and its Hollister Co. outlet in San Mateo violated the religious rights of a Muslim employee who was fired for refusing to remove her headscarf, a federal judge has ruled.

The clothing retailer failed to prove it would suffer undue hardship by accommodating the beliefs of Hani Khan, who wore the hijab mandated by her faith for four months at the store in the Hillsdale Shopping Center before she was fired in February 2010.
