Settlement reached between UPS and eight Muslim women who alleged discrimination by the company

Toronto - Eight Muslim women who filed a human rights complaint against the United Parcel Service (UPS) over the dress code have settled with the company

According to the Toronto Star, the case was heard before a Canadian Human Rights tribunal, Monday morning.

The terms of the settlement will not be released.

The women, all devout Muslims,  lost their jobs in 2005 because they refused to hike their skirts above the knee over their long pants.   They alleged discrimination.

UPS said the ankle-length skirts were a safety hazard as workers climb ladders up to six metres high.
