Norway employer regrets hijab gaffe
by Michael Sandelson
Senior management in western Norway have issued an apology after asking a female staff member refrain from using her hijab at work.
The incident was sparked off after Upper Secondary School pupil Ebru Akinci was called into the manager's office at a Shell petrol station in Stavanger last week.
She had just started her new part-time job that day following a short period of training when general manager Sigve Grønnestad posed the question.
