Belgian Hema store wrong to sack headscarf-wearing worker
A Belgian branch of Dutch department store Hema was wrong to sack a woman worker for wearing a headscarf, a Belgian industrial tribunal ruled on Wednesday.
The woman had worked for the store in Genk for two months wearing a headscarf but was then sacked for refusing to remove it after complaints from customers.
The tribunal ordered Hema to pay the 21-year-old woman six month's salary - €9,000 – in compensation.
