Supreme Court Rules In Favor of Hijab-Wearing Abercrombie and Fitch Applicant

In 2008, Samantha Elauf applied for a sales job at an Abercrombie and Fitch in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She was denied the job because she wore a hijab, which did not fit within Abercrombie and Fitch’s strict “Look Policy.” Elauf filed an employment discrimination lawsuit against Abercrombie and Fitch, and yesterday, the Supreme Court ruled 8-1 in her favor.
