Muslim woman sues Disney for discrimination

so what say you?

comes down to the employee wishing to wear her hijab (head scarf) while she is the hostess at a Disney cafe in Disneyland. Disney has a strict dress code, and offered the woman a job working in the back of the cafe while they make an attempt to accommodate her request to wear the hijab.

it should be noted that the woman has worked for Disney for the last two years, and only recently decided she need to wear her hijab while working.

http://ocresort.ocregister.com/2010/...ination/53409/

Quote:
Imane Boudlal, a restaurant hostess at the Storytellers’ Cafe in the Grand Californian Hotel in Downtown Disney, said she has been sent home without pay four times this week after attempting to wear a hijab at work.
But Suzi Brown, a Disneyland Resort spokeswoman, said Boudlal was offered a behind-the-scenes assignment at the restaurant until a solution could be figured out. Brown denied that the company discriminated against Boudlal.
Quote:
“I’m not going to accept to work in the back,” said Boudlal, 26, of Anaheim.

In the press conference, Boudlal said she believes she was discriminated against because she looks Muslim. Boudlal said she sent a letter to Disney requesting that she be able to wear a head scarf. After they kept delaying a response, she decided to report to work with it.
Quote:
Boudlal decided to try wearing the head scarf to work after becoming a U.S. citizen in June and learning about her rights of freedom of religion. Some Muslim women wear a hijab, which covers the hair and neck, as a form of modesty.

This is an interesting dilemma for government. Does it provide this woman with "social justice" and force Disney to honor her religious rights. Or does it provide Disney with protection for its property rights, and allow them to excersize their private policies making this woman to choose her employment based on her principles.

I guess that depends on whether you think that there is a such thing as a right to a job, and whether that right can be excersized over property rights.

An interesting case indeed...

stop being logical. DISNEY HATES MUSLIMS!

btw, i'll never go to any Disney theme park because Disney collects fingerprints of guests and i'd prefer not support a private branch of the FBI for the privilege of having breakfast with Mickey Mouse.

So what?

Prove Disney is connected with the FBI in any way.

If you buy a season pass to Disney, or any other theme park for that matter, you can hand your pass off to friends and they can go into the parks.

Is Disney sharing the fingerprints with anyone? I doubt it, but you conspiracy nut jobs consider anything to be wrong if it doesn't match up with your personal beliefs.

If you aren't a criminal you shouldn't care if they have their own data base.

As for the woman that wants to wear her hijab, like has been said in previous posts, she knew the rules when she took the job. If she changed her religion after the fact she should quit. Everyone that works there wears a uniform, even Mickey Mouse.

There are some important details that are not being widely reported which makes this look a lot better for Disney. I dont think this woman has a case.

This particular job is a costumed job. Apparently in that restaurant there's a Chip 'n Dale (those cartoon chipmunks) theme, and the wait staff are supposed to look like park rangers. They dont have to allow their park rangers to wear head scarves, it would be like a director making an old western movie and one of the actors suing because the movie company would not let an actor wear a headscarf in the movie. It is a costumed position, they dont have to put up with that crap.

Religious freedom is not absolute, you need a good reason to restrict this sort of thing. In this case, Disney actually does have a good reason, and they bent over backwards to try to help her, offering her a job out of sight of patrons, and even taking her to the costume department and showing her ranger hats she could wear if she wanted.

This lawsuit is going nowhere.
