Dutch Government Agency Rebukes Security Firm for Rejecting Employment Application of Sabbath-Observing Jew

FSWC Reports:

From the Jewish Telegraphic Agency:
THE HAGUE (JTA) -- A Dutch governmental agency advised a security firm to hire a Sabbath-observing intern after ruling that employers may not reject Jewish candidates on the basis of their refusal to work on the Jewish day of rest.

The ruling came at the end of a hearing by the Board for the Protection of Human Rights, an advisory agency tasked with preventing discrimination, concerning the case of an intern that was rejected for a job because he would not work on the Sabbath.
