URGENT: Supreme Court to Make Ruling on Shariah Law… in America [DETAILS]

URGENT: Supreme Court to Make Ruling on Shariah Law… in America [DETAILS].

Early in 2015, the Supreme Court will weigh in on a case involving a young Muslim woman who wanted to wear her hijab as a new employee of Abercrombie & Fitch in Tulsa, Okla., in violation of the company’s dress code.

Samantha Elauf was 17 when she applied and interviewed for a job at the clothing retailer’s Woodland Hills Mall location in June 2008.

Although it has since modified the dress code for its sales associates, called models, the chain at that time required them to dress in clothing similar in style to its own offerings, and specifically forbade black clothing and hats.

Elauf wore a black hijab to her interview.

After a district manager overruled an assistant manager’s decision to hire Elauf, she contacted the Oklahoma Chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood front group Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has been recognized by other nations as a terrorist organization but not by the United States.

As they so often do, CAIR assisted Elauf with a religious discrimination lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch before the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, claiming that the company failed to abide by federal law that requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for the religious practices of their employees.

Although Elauf never requested a religious exemption to the dress code policy, a federal court sided with her in 2011. That decision was reversed two years later on appeal, however.

Now the EEOC has appealed to SCOTUS, Tulsa World reported.

Neither side would comment on the case, but Adam Solanti, executive director of CAIR-Oklahoma, said in a statement that he was pleased to see that SCOTUS would review the lower court’s decision.

“We are disappointed in the decision made by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that places the burden upon the individual to request a religious accommodation as a part of the interview process,” his statement read.

In other words, he appears to believe that all companies should be required to be familiar with the religious beliefs and practices of any religion that could potentially be practiced by all of its current and potential future employees so that they can proactively offer accommodations without being asked.

Seems reasonable.
