American-Islamic Relations and Advance America Cash Advance Centers, Inc. Announce Settlement in Lawsuit over Religious Head Scarf
Oct 23 15
The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) and Advance America Cash Advance Centers Inc. announced that they had reached a settlement in CAIR-MI's federal lawsuit against Advance America. The lawsuit challenged a company security policy that required the temporary removal of any head covering for entry to Advance America centers; the nationwide policy enabled employees to identify customers before they entered a center. The lawsuit was filed after an Advance America employee asked a Muslim woman to temporarily remove her hijab in order to access an Advance America location to cash a money order. The agreement, the specific details of which remain confidential, includes a commitment by the company to modify its policy to allow a customer to enter an Advance America center without removing religious head covering, provided that the customer's face is visible for identification.
