Supreme Court to Hear Oral Arguments in Hijab Religious Accommodation Case

Washington, DC | www.adc.org | February 23, 2015 – The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) calls on supporters to show solidarity with the right to religious accommodation by attending oral arguments for Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. Abercrombie & Fitch Stores, Inc. The Supreme Court of the United States will hear oral arguments for the case on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at 10:00AM. 

ADC encourages attendees to arrive at the Supreme Court well in advance of 9:00AM, as access to Supreme Court oral arguments is granted on a first come basis. A strong attendance by Arab and Muslim Americans, as well as those who wear articles faith for any religion, will demonstrate support for the right to religious accommodation and protection from discrimination. Click here for more information on visiting the Supreme Court.

In this case, Abercrombie refused to hire a Muslim woman who wore her hijab to a job interview. ADC filed an amicus brief in the Supreme Court in support of the EEOC’s position that employees have a legally protected right to practice their religion in the workplace by wearing articles of faith, including the Muslim hijab.  Click here to read more about the case and ADC’s brief. 

ADC frequently assists Arab and Muslim Americans in cases of employment discrimination and harassment. If you feel that your right to religious accommodation has been violated by an employer, please contact the ADC legal department at (202) 244-2990 or legal@adc.org.
