Civil rights groups and Advance America announce settlement in lawsuit over hijab
Arab American News
Advance America will be implementing a new policy nationwide after a string of Muslim women had filed discriminatory complaints against the company.
The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) and Advance America Cash Advance Centers, Inc. announced on Thursday, October 22 that a settlement was reached in a lawsuit against the company's security policy, which required the removal of head covering prior to entry at Advance America locations.
The lawsuit was filed after an Advance America employee asked a Muslim woman to temporarily remove her hijab in order to access an Advance America location to cash a money order.
