Headscarf Ban Rulings

The European Court of Justice has held that a ban on religious headscarves by a security company was not discriminatory as it was justified by a policy of political, philosophical or religious neutrality in customer facing roles.

In another judgement on the same day the ECJ also held that a headscarf ban was unlawful because it was not based upon a policy of neutrality but in response to an objection by a customer.
