(WASHINGTON, D.C., 10/19/17) -- The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) today filed a sexual and religious harassment and discrimination complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on behalf of a Muslim employee of LSG Sky Chefs Inc. at Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) who alleges that a supervisor forcibly removed her Islamic head scarf, or hijab.

According to the Muslim employee, no action has been taken against the alleged perpetrator of the physical attack. The Muslim worker has been an employee of the company for more than 25 years.
