Dentist Hires A New Employee - 3 Days Later She Makes A Shocking Demand

A Muslim woman feels she was a victim of discrimination because her new boss asked her not to wear her hijab to work. Her former boss stands by his actions and says there was no discrimination behind his request.

Najaf Khan of Virginia did not wear a hijab when she applied for a position at Fair Oaks Dental Care in Fairfax County. She did not wear a hijab her first or her second day on the job. When she wore it on the third day, it caused her to walk out in a huff. Dr. Chuck Joo, owner of the business, told her that she couldn't wear a hijab off the street into the dental office.

"When I said that I would not compromise my religion for that, he held the door open for me and I walked out," Khan told News4.

Dr. Joo Khan's religion was never a problem, nor was her hijab.

“Our office does not have any objections to hijabs," Joo explained on Facebook. "We only asked Ms. Khan to wear a separate, clean hijab (for office wear only) or wear a sanitary head cover over her hijab while seeing patients in the office, just like we require all employees to wear full scrubs and not street clothes in the office when treating patients. This dress code has applied to all dental assistants since 2003, when it was first implemented."

"Ms. Khan did not find the dress code or the alternative we offered suitable and she then walked out on her own accord," the dentist said, noting that they even reached out to her that night to see if she still wanted the job. Khan had been offered a rare deal with the office: three months of paid dental training in exchange for an eventually full-time job there.

"Ms. Khan elected not to respond," said Joo.

Khan did, however, go to the media and to the Council on American-Islamic Relations to complain about Islamophobia.
