Coming to the question of religious freedom at work. Of course there should be however I don't think it's possible to work for example as a lawyer or a doctor wearing a burqa. There are certain jobs where you simply need to see the face.
 
 
 
Hijabs are fine. No one should complain.

Religious freedom should be a reasonable accommodation is one that eliminates the employee's conflict between his/her religious practices and work requirements and that does not cause an undue hardship for the employer. Also to the legal requirement to accommodate religious employees, a commitment to religious accommodation can improve employee morale and help retain valued employees who are religious.  In the US, there are guidelines on religious exercise and religious expression in the federal workplace. The private employers do not have to adhere to these exact guidelines, but these guidelines can be helpful to shed light on how principles of religious freedom apply in both government and private-sector employment.This hand-in-hand process between employee and the employer.

Exactly...Freedom is the key word here...when we live in a secular country we should have the freedom to make choices...the way that a hijaab wearing women has the choice to reject employment in a company that would not allow her to wear one...the same way a private company should have the choice to not their employees wear a head dress if the same goes against tghe image of the company...like RTH said it has to be determined if they did that just in case of that particular women or they really do not allow any kind of head dress...
Even when it comes to making exceptions for the physically handicapped ..the law says that it has to be REASONABLE...which means that no company has to go out of its way to make such an exception...I guess that same should go for religion too..

Hmmm I think packaging helps but more important is character n personality too.
If they behave like a XXX then all is ruined.
It is all in the culture.

First of all, I don't understand why people immediately bring up the face covering issue since a hijab is just a head covering. Why a hijaabi girl would want to work at a place like Abercrombie, I do not know. However, I think the problem here is that the company hired her knowing she wore a head scarf and then later fired her for wearing it or not taking it off as requested. It would be one thing to offer her employment with the dress code regulations that do not permit head coverings and leave that choice to choose religion over employment (or vice versa) up to her. But I think the problem is that not each branch/manager enforces the regulations at the same level and later realizes that they should, which leads to trouble like this.

Companies are also free to decide what will or will not be permitted in their dress code (without even providing an explanation for it) - but this dress code should be clearly described to potential employees. Hiring and then firing is not reasonable.

As a police force you should be as friendly as possible. People may be more compfortable when knowing who they are speaking to than someone who is covered head to toe. Also if someone wants to work wearing a burqa covering every inch of their body its better to work where there is no direct interaction eg., a call center.

PS: Nice to see the king's old riends here @ Summer and Woh Ajnabee

Jai Maharaj ji.

These days there should be more tolerance and reasonableness.
Even Sikhs wear a head gear and no one complains.
