Teens Win Settlement to Change "Abercrombie Look" Policy

Teen clothing retailer Abercrombie and Fitch has agreed to a legal settlement with the federal government and teenage Moslem workers who had refused to take off their hijabs - religious head-scarves. Abercrombie and Fitch had said the headscarves violated the company’s “look policy”, but the settlement follows rulings that the company policy violated federal and state religious discrimination laws.
