  • No exception on safety helmet rules for Sikh workers, Quebec judge rules

    A Quebec judge has ruled turban-wearing Sikh truck drivers must wear hard hats in the workplace when safety standards require them. Three Sikh men who drove container trucks at the Port of Montreal had argued they had a right to wear a turban instead of a helmet based on Quebec and Canadian charter rights protecting freedom of religion. In a ruling released Wednesday, Quebec Superior Court Justice Andre Prevost recognized that the requirement to wear helmets violated the mens' charter rights but ruled that safety should trump religion in this case.
