only show that his need for an accommodation was a motivating factor” in being refused a job, whether or not the company had "actual knowledge" of this need (Collins & Sokolowski, 2015). Question that I have is why didn’t the interviewer ask Mrs. Elauf this question? Why did the interviewer assume that it was just a headscarf or a headdress? Why didn’t Mrs. Elauf make her religion known? I believe that both parties are responsible for this issue because they both were assuming and nobody actually asked the most important question. If the interviewer had strong suspicion of her Muslim religion or if he just wanted to ask her just to verify then I feel like that was the time to do that so that they could have provided her with accommodations. Even the interviewers asking her these particular questions would possibly pose for more discrimination. At the same time Mrs. Elauf should have expressed that she was a part of the Muslim community and informed them that she would be wearing her hijab to work. One of our reading sources made a good point, the article expressed that major companies are being targeted because most Muslims do not want to work for major companies like this. In all cases with major companies, the company bent over backwards to accommodate these demands, but that’s always taken as a sign of weakness, and accommodation gives way to more demands to the applicant/employee.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
