New hijab discrimination case hits Norway
A 21-year-old woman was offered a job as a nursing assistant in the Ullern district of Oslo, but only if she would work without her hijab.
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, applied for the in-home care position in January, but the person who would receive her help did not want an assistant who wore a hijab.
Oslo Municipality agreed to honour the person's wishes and a municipal employee sent the 21-year-old woman a text message offering her the job on the condition that she would remove her headscarf, NRK reported.
