Attorney talks discrimination, wearing hijabs in the workplace

ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)- We’ve seen it in the headlines, women discriminated against for wearing a hijab. It’s a veil or scarf traditionally worn by Muslim women that covers the head and neck.

A hijab is also a sign of modesty and for some women, it’s a religious commandment.

Attorney Gonzalo Fernandez is not affiliated with this case but is with us to explain the law and a case involving a woman in St. Louis County.
