No scarf, job seeker told, but jeweller says it was an error
by Corazon Miller
A Muslim woman's employment hopes were dashed when a prospective manager told her not to bother applying for a jewellery store job because of her headscarf.
The second such incident within nine months at a store run by James Pascoe Group has led to its head office issuing a stern warning to staff that discrimination, on any grounds, will not be tolerated.
Mona Alfadli, 25, applied for a job as a retail assistant position at the New Lynn Stewart Dawsons on July 9. She says she was told it was a "waste of time" if she wouldn't remove her hijab.
