Muslim women fired for wearing long skirts reach settlement with UPS
A delivery company operating in Ontario has reached a settlement with eight Muslim women it fired three years ago for uniform violations after the women filed a complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission.
Nadifo Yusuf, 35, worked as a temporary employee at a United Parcel Service (UPS) delivery plant in Toronto for two years. She wore the traditional Muslim clothes — hijab, headscarf and ankle-length skirt — to work every day. At times when it was necessary for safety reasons, she tucked in her hijab and raised her skirt to mid-calf.
