Oklahoma bank tellers are now being trained on how to handle customers who cover their heads for religious reasons.
In November, FOX23 talked to an Oklahoma woman who said she felt discriminated against when she was asked to remove her traditional Muslim head scarf before entering a south Tulsa bank.
Valley National Bank told FOX23 it had nothing to do with religion, but with customer safety. The Oklahoma Bankers Association had a no hats, no hoods, no sunglasses policy. Bank employees are now being trained in how to tactfully ask to see a customer’s face.
