BERLIN – A Muslim teacher was awarded a compensation of €8,680 (US$9,250) after a Berlin school refused to hire her for wearing a hijab. "This is a good day for anti-discrimination in Berlin," Dirk Behrendt of the Green party (Buendnis 90/Die Gruenen) said welcoming the verdict, RT reported on Friday, February 10. "The verdict is the beginning of the end of the Neutrality Act." According to Judge Renate Schaude, the fact that during her job interview the applicant was asked whether she wanted to teach children wearing a headscarf was an indication of discrimination, Kieler Nachrichten reported. The labor court in the federal state of Berlin-Brandenburg concluded on Thursday that by wearing the headscarf the woman wouldn't have posed a threat to the school or its discipline, DPA reported. The defendant had appealed a court ruling which had rejected her complaint last year. According to Berlin’s so-called ‘neutrality law,’ policemen, teachers and judicial employees on duty should not wear religious clothing. However, Judge Schaude referred to a 2015 ruling by Germany's Federal Constitutional Court, which stated that headscarf bans in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia violated religious freedom. Islam sees hijab as an obligatory code of dress, not a religious symbol displaying one’s affiliations.
