Religious employers can ban headscarves - court
Germany's highest employment court ruled on Wednesday religious employers may forbid Muslim workers from wearing headscarves, in a case brought by a nurse against a Christian hospital.
The 36-year-old nurse from Bochum brought the case against her employer, a hospital sponsored by the Evangelical Church.
She requested to wear the headscarf, which she had not done previously, on her return after a long period of maternity leave and illness.
