WASHINGTON (AP) – The U.S. Supreme Court is considering the employment discrimination claim of a Muslim woman from Oklahoma who was turned down for a job by Abercrombie & Fitch after she showed up at her job interview wearing a headscarf.

The case being argued today explores when an employer must take steps to accommodate the religious beliefs of a worker or job applicant.

Samantha Elauf was 17 when she interviewed for a position at an Abercrombie Kids store in 2008.
