A Home Depot manager discriminated against a Sikh security guard who refused to replace his turban with a hard hat, a human rights tribunal has ruled.

The decision, by the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, stated Milton Home Depot assistant manager Brian Busch discriminated against Deepinder Loomba “by selectively enforcing” a hard hat rule.

“I’m happy, it’s been a long battle after five years,” Loomba, 52, said Thursday. “In the multicultural society, more education is required on religion, so these problems won’t reoccur.”
