  • Abstract

      In an interim ruling regarding the refusal by the City of Brussels to employ a female candidate wearing an Islamic headscarf, the Brussels Labour Tribunal considered that such a public authority is allowed to pursue a neutrality policy concerning functions that involve contact with the public, thus concluding that the City of Brussels did not discriminate against a female candidate when refusing to employ her on the ground that she wore a religious symbol.
