Austria rules face veil ban at work is 'not discriminatory'
One of Austria's highest courts has ruled that companies who ban the wearing of face veils are 'not discriminating' against their employees.
The case heard by the Supreme Court concerns a Muslim woman who was dismissed from her job after she told her bosses she wanted to wear a full face veil in the future.
The woman, who already wore a headscarf and over-garment known as the abaya, also said her company discriminated against her while being assigned work tasks due to her religious dress.
