I hear yuh there, even though there are alot of people who think otherwise, but when you decide to name your company after a man(in essence glorying him)  who was gay and died of AIDS, it will raise some eyebrows.

Republic: 'No hat' policy to protect customers

By Richard Charan richard.charan@trinidadexpress.com

Story Created: Jan 18, 2011 at 11:54 PM ECT

Story Updated: Jan 18, 2011 at 11:54 PM ECT

Rastafarian Michael Scott is claiming he was booted out of the Siparia branch of Republic Bank Ltd because he refused the bank's request to remove the hat covering his dreadlocks.

Scott said when he protested, his account was closed by the bank's manager, who promised a cheque for all his outstanding deposits would be sent in the mail.

As of yesterday, Scott said he was yet to receive the cheque.

Scott's claims are made in a letter sent yesterday by his attorney, Derek Ali, to Republic Bank's managing director, David Dulal-Whiteway. Scott also intends to complain to the Equal Opportunity Commission and the Banking Ombudsman.

Contacted yesterday afternoon by phone, the bank's general manager, marketing and communications, Anna-Maria Garcia-Brooks was asked to comment on the allegations, but confirmed only that Republic Bank had a no-hat policy.

She told the Express the policy was instituted for the protection of the bank's customers.

Garcia-Brooks said the policy has been in place for some time. She was contacted later again yesterday for further comment, but said she could not comment further at that time.

Scott, 52, of Beach Road, Palo Seco, who retired medically unfit from the Water and Sewerage Authority, said he was a customer at the bank for 32 years.

The lawyer's letter states that on January 7, Scott went to the bank to do business and was told by the security guard that "the bank's policy dictated that no one will be allowed service at the bank while wearing a hat or while utilising a cellphone".

Scott said his dreadlocks were neatly tucked under the appropriate headwear and it was no different from what he wore for three decades. He said he tried to explain to the bank guard that his dreadlocks were an expression of his faith.

Scott said his explanation was not accepted by the guard or bank manager, "who insisted that he subject himself to the humiliation of removing his headwear in full public view or he will not be allowed service at the bank". He said when he complained that the bank was discriminatory against "Rastamen", he was "promptly thrown out the bank in full public view".

Attorney Derek Ali said the actions against Scott "are not enforced against any members of other religious groups, for example, members of the Muslim faith are allowed to attend the bank wearing either a Hijab or a Burka; members of the Baptist faith are permitted to attend the bank wearing full Baptiste headwear and members of the Hindu faith can attend the bank wearing either an Orhni or similar headwear".

In a letter dated January 10 by the bank's branch sales manager, Scott was told a cheque would be delivered since "we are unable to provide you with the standard of service required by your good self despite our efforts. This was evident by your behaviour/actions and the use of obscene language in our banking hall, on more than one occasion directed to staff, the security guard and the branch manger".

Scott said he never misbehaved, and his lawyer believes the bank is liable to pay damages for breach of contract.

I thnk that's what they looking at the alert yuh padna thing. The hat thing however eh make no sense. The hat on yuh head. You can still see the person face, cameras can still record their faces. I don't understand what they hope to accomplish. Never like Republic and Royal at all. Use to bank with FCB.

Many banks here in the US ask you to remove hats and shades also.

I will never forget when I was server in a US establishment, a rastaman came in with his dreds tucked under his hat and you should have seen how the other servers reacted in awe. They had never seen "such a sight"; what did he have under his hat? They couldn't believe that was his hair under the hat. If the banks reason for asking the removal of the hat were for "security reasons'; is that the same requirement at airports or government buildings?

Be happy that yuh never get seated close to the toilet... if is not cleaning supplies yuh smelling, is a steady traffic of people near yuh elbow.  As for them discriminating by sending yuh way to de back as yuh suspect, these places typically rotate where a customer is seated (but you are always free to ask for another table).  The rotation is to ensure that every server gets customers, servers typically are assigned a zone in the restaurant each night... so they rotate customers thru the zones.

As for the hat thing... I too think the 'security' or safety talk is nonsense, but I don't necessarily agree that it is discriminatory.  Wearing a hat is not the same as a "headwrap", or burqa, hijab or ohrni.  I also don't see what the EOC will/can do... and this is not no "breach of contract."

thats ridiculous, these establishments can't ask or differentiate between religious head gear and fashion.

its like asking a sikh to remove his turban. there has to be a point where religious head gear is made seperate than just a hat.
