New CJEU ruling on the wearing of religious symbols in the workplace

The claimant, a Muslim woman referred to as L.F., applied for a six-week traineeship with SCRL in Belgium, a company which manages social housing. When asked if she would remove her headscarf while working, she said no. L.F. later offered to wear another head covering but was informed by the company that they did not allow any head-coverings, religious or not. L.F. brought a claim to the Labour Court alleging direct discrimination.
