French court backs nursery for firing veil-wearing employee
A French appeals court ruled Thursday that a kindergarten had acted legally by firing a female employee who refused to remove an Islamic headscarf, the nursery's lawyer said.
The Versailles Appeals Court said the Baby-Loup nursery in nearby Chanteloup-les-Vignes had acted within a law allowing privately-owned kindergartens to forbid the wearing of religious symbols when it fired the employee in 2008, lawyer Richard Malka said.
The decision upheld a previous ruling by a French employment tribunal.
