Toronto Airport Caves in...
This is unfortunate...they should have stuck to principle...
A Muslim airport screener who was suspended from her job at Toronto's Pearson airport because her skirt was too long has been allowed to return to work under a compromise with her employer.
The security company, Garda of Canada, has offered the worker, Halima Muse, a full-time administrative job that will allow her to wear civilian attire instead of the uniform required in her previous role, the Teamsters union said in a statement on Wednesday.
Muse's employer had suspended her for wearing a skirt longer than the knee-length garment the company had issued her. She wanted to wear the longer skirt to conform with the Islamic dress code.
The union, which represents security workers at Pearson airport, said Muse would also receive back pay for the three months she was on suspension.
Muse said she is content with the ruling as long as her salary stays the same.
