LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A former Disneyland employee who says she was prohibited from wearing a Muslim head scarf at work plans to sue the Walt Disney Co. for discrimination.

Imane Boudlal was a restaurant hostess at the Anaheim theme park but hasn't worked there for about two years.

Boudlal says she was barred from wearing the head scarf because it wasn't part of her approved work costume. Disney says she refused to wear a specially designed hat instead or to accept jobs away from customers.

Disney spokeswoman Suzi Brown told the Los Angeles Times that the company has a long history of accommodating the religious requests of employees.
