NYC Transit Reduces Religious Garments Policy
A settlement has been reached in a long-running lawsuit over religious garments worn by New York City transit workers, a case brought to the forefront following the terrorist attacks of 2001.
FOX News Radio’s Lisa Brady has details from New York City:
Under a policy that was already on the books, but not actively enforced until after 9/11, New York City bus and subway workers who wanted to wear religious head coverings had to either brand the garments with the parent company’s logo, or work out of public view.
Eight years after the U.S. Justice Department sued, a settlement allowing religious headwear, including turbans and scarves, in public, as long as they’re plain navy blue, like the Transit uniform.
The Transit Authority, also agrees to monetary settlements with eight current and former Sikh and Muslim employees.
