An Alabama nursing home is being sued after it allegedly refused to allow a Muslim worker to wear a hijab on the job, according to a lawsuit filed by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission last week.
Shadescrest Health Care Center hired Tracy Martin as a certified nursing assistant in August 2012, according to the lawsuit. Martin reportedly wore the hijab on Aug. 9 and was told to remove the head covering or be subject to termination, according to the government'spress release published Monday. Martin filed a discrimination charge with the EEOC and was fired weeks after Shadescrest received notice of the complaint.
The EEOC charges that Martin was fired in retaliation to her discrimination complaint and for her attempt to exercise her religious rights, the government alleges.

Patients should counter sue that they were terrorized by the hajib and expected to be killed for being infidels.
Looked way too much like , The Grim Reaper ?
Oh, no, this simply cannot be!
Hang the nursing home managers by their thumbs; draw and quarter ‘em; blow them from cannons; lynch them from light poles.
But never, never, never assert that those owning and managing facilities of any sort should be able to set policy.
Not in Obama’s Politically Correct Marxist States of America.
good for them
who wants to see that s#i+ in an old folks home anyway ?
You’re d@amn right! I like my head where it is!
Don’t try it with a traditional nun’s habit.
Here in the belly of the `Great Satan’, wearing the hijab is an in-your-face to “infidels”. The residents have a right to be fearful of a member of the staff going jihad on them.
OBTW, can you trust your Muslim doctor?
Wonder who's going to win this one?
Strangely, liberals who would deny the religious freedom of employers over free contraceptives would support the religious freedom of workers to wear a hockey mask.
She probably skips the alcohol hand wipes too - those aren’t Halal you know. And yes, in Obamastan the feds will back her up (and tell you to STFU about your grandmother’s infection.)
If the law requires them to keep her in their employ, I think they would be doing their patients a favor by allowing her to wear her muslim costume. It identifies her as a vagina for satan, which lets the patients know they need to take precautions.
“if you Like Your Mooselim Doctor....
She probably skips the alcohol hand wipes too
do they use toilet paper ?
I got a question do I have right sue her personally if my sick grandma get sick because of not washing her hands I think I have a case in State of CA
Did she show up with it on her first day of work?
If the answer is no, then it's not a religions conviction that causes her to wear it, it's a political one.
Its not a good thing for a nursing home worker to walk around dressed like the Grim Reaper.
An employer has the right to implement a dress code. If she didn’t like it, she is free to find employment elsewhere.
