Susann Bashir worked at Southwestern Bell, a division of AT&T,

Susann Bashir worked at Southwestern Bell, a division of AT&T, from 1999 until 2010, when she was fired. In 2005, Bashir had converted to Islam. Several of her coworkers and two of her supervisors made degrading comments to her concerning her traditional hijab head covering. Bashir's supervisor referred to her as "one of those bomb-people" and was told repeatedly to remove her "hat thing." One of Bashir's supervisors allegedly tried to pull Bashir's hijab off of her head. Southwestern Bell countered that there was no evidence that such actions had occurred. AT&T asserted its dedication to maintaining an inclusive workplace. Does this case constitute discrimination? If so, how? What act protects Bashir if discrimination is present? Bashir v. S.W. Bell Tel. Co., No. 1016-CV38690 (Mo., Jackson Co. Cir. May 3, 2012).
