Woman sues dentist over job rejection for headscarf

Source: The Local

“We do not employ women who wear headscarves and do not understand why applicants would expect us to,” the rejection letter said, according to the woman’s lawyer.The woman, who is an experienced dental nurse, now intends to seek damages from the dentist in a labour court, Spiegel reports.According to German law, no one can be treated differently in the workplace based on things that have nothing to do with their ability to perform their job, such as ethnicity, religion or age.The dentist has now gone public with an apology, stating on his website that his letter of rejection was “insufficient and utterly wrongly formulated”.“My wording was simply stupid and unfitting. I can only hope that my apology will be accepted,” he wrote, claiming he had “nothing to do with the AfD (Alternative for Germany) and neo-Nazis.”The dentist claimed rather that he had rejected the woman for reasons of hygiene, citing guidelines from the Robert Koch Institute, a German public health organization. But the woman’s lawyer told Spiegel that the hygiene argument was “complete nonsense”, claiming that he knew of many dental nurses and dentists who wore headscarves.

  1. #Woman sues dentist over job rejection for headscarf# – this is now in the process of raising its ugly head – The (illiterate), Muslims are a front for the ‘hidden’ danger of the jews through ignorance of the transcripted {judaism}, contents of the Qur’an. The followers of the Qur’an, (likewise followers of the Bible), are a human shield for the jews. The Bible/Qur’an ‘conflict/altercation’, is governed by the ignorance of both parties of the similarities in each others’ religious books, and the obvious connection of both books to the judaism scriptures.
