Corporate Influence Operation
Date: October 7, 2010
A Muslim woman was hired by a Philadelphia shoe store. When the woman started working on October 7 she wore a head scarf. The district manager asked her to remove the head scarf because the shoe chain does not allow its employees to display their religion, but the woman refused. As a result, she got laid off.
CAIR pressured the store by filing a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission which resulted in Campbell being reinstated and the district manager who fired her being suspended.
