Ana Saida Rodríguez, the Acciona employee at Palma airport who was suspended from work for disobeying a company order instructing her not to wear a hijab veil, has won her case of appeal against the company.
A court in Palma yesterday ruled that she can wear the veil while at work. Acciona was ordered to pay her compensation of 7,892 euros and to suspend the sanctions it had imposed. Acciona has the right to appeal the ruling at the Balearic High Court.
The judgement stated that someone's freedom to express religion cannot be subject to any restrictions other than those provided for by law. Acciona maintained that this wasn't a case of discrimination on religious grounds but was to do with the application of the company dress code.
