ANAHEIM A former Disney employee filed a federal lawsuit Monday accusing Disney of discrimination based on her religion.

In her suit, Imane Boudlal claims Disney refused to let her wear her religious headscarf or hijab at work in view of customers when she worked as a restaurant hostess at the Storytellers' Cafe in the Grand Californian Hotel in Downtown Disney. "We presented Ms. Boudlal with multiple options to accommodate her religious beliefs, as well as offered her several roles that would have allowed her to wear her own hijab. ... "Unfortunately, she rejected all of our efforts and has since refused to come to work."

She knew the rules when hired yet suddenly, after 2 years, she decides its important to her religious beliefs to wear the scarf. More likely that she decided it would be easier to sue and get $$$ rather than continue to work for it. Racial slurs? An ACLU automatic response in most all their cases. Islam is not a race.

She could have worked at Epcot in the middle east area for sure.

This is the USA and Disney is a private company. The right judge will toss this case out on it’s butt...

Finding a judge that understands the law might be a problem however.

I would have given her this option so she would be covered head to toe.
