The U.S. Supreme Court recently heard oral arguments in EEOC v. Abercrombie & Fitch, No. 14-86, a case alleging that implementation of the retail store’s “Look Policy” caused religious discrimination.  We have blogged about this case previously –  here, here, here, here, and here.  To recap, this case was brought by the EEOC alleging that Abercrombie & Fitch failed to hire Samantha Elauf, a Muslim woman, as a sales associate because she wore a hijab.  Abercrombie & Fitch has a policy called the “Look Policy” that prohibits the wearing of any head coverings.  Our blog editor, Gerald L. Maatman, Jr. (@g_maatman) discusses the oral arguments in the case and his take on what to expect from the case with Colin O’Keefe from LXBN TV (@LXBN) in the video below.
