The European Court of Justice upholds a ban on wearing the hijab in the workplace

The European Court of Justice ended the debate that had been going on for years in the EU countries and issued a decision Thursday banning the wearing of the hijab in companies and workplaces, under the pretext of “enjoying neutrality and preventing the wearing of all signs that constitute direct discrimination between employees.”

The European Union Court of Justice said on Thursday that companies in the bloc can ban the hijab as long as it is a general ban that does not discriminate between employees, in the latest ruling in a case that has divided Europe for years.

The case concerns a Muslim woman who was told that she could not wear the hijab when she applied for six-week job training at a Belgian company.

The company said that it follows what it called a “neutral rule” that does not allow wearing a head covering, whether it is a hat, hat, or scarf, at its headquarters. The woman filed her complaint with a Belgian court, which in turn sought advice from the Court of Justice of the European Union.

The Supreme Court, based in Luxembourg, said that there is no direct discrimination in such a ban, as it put it.

The judges’ decision stated: “An internal rule for any economic activity prohibiting the wearing of visible religious, philosophical or spiritual signs does not constitute direct discrimination if it is applied to all employees in a general and non-discriminatory manner.”

The court said last year that European Union companies could prevent employees from wearing head coverings under certain circumstances if they had to present a neutral image to customers.

In Germany, the ban on the hijab for women at work has sparked controversy for years, and most of the cases relate to female teachers who aspired to work in public schools and women training to advance to the judiciary.

France, which has the largest Muslim minority in Europe, has banned the wearing of the hijab in public schools since 2004. At the same time, it obligated female government employees in general to exercise what it calls “complete neutrality,” without the French authorities legally resolving the issue of wearing the hijab in other companies and institutions.

In 2014, the French Supreme Court upheld a ruling to dismiss a worker from her job because she wore the hijab. Recently, as part of the separatism bill approved by the French Senate, a fierce campaign was launched in France, inflamed by the extreme right, fighting the condition of any girl under the age of 18 to wear the hijab.

For years, European countries have engaged in intense discussions pushing towards enacting laws preventing the ban of all religious symbols within educational institutions and major facilities in these countries.

With the recent decision issued by the Supreme Court, the fears of Muslims in Europe of racist exclusion and the widening circle of harassment against them are rising behind the veil of the law.
