The essay analyzes the characteristics of the European Union law in the matter of religious freedom and investigates the very two first European Court of Justice caselaw about the dismissal of Muslim women that refused to take off their hijab. The study considers the arguments to identify the limits of religious freedom at work, and the significance of the «neutrality strategy of corporate identity». In the last part of the essay, the Author underlines the importance of the duty of the employer to find a "reasonable accommodation" to avoid the dismissal and the implication of the decisions in Italian Labour law.
