    Re: Christian Woman Fired from Burger King for Wearing Skirt Instead of Pants

    Was there a rational reason for BK demanding she wear pants? Now in a perfect world free of FDR expansions of the Commerce Clause, a private employer should be able to dictate what their employees wear

    for example, if you want to be a playboy bunny you are going to have to meet the standards and wear a silly tail on a leotard three sizes too small for your body. If you want to work at hooters-its tacky orange shorts over nylons. and in a local Pub, the guys wear kilts


    but I don't see this much differently than accommodating an Orthodox Jew by allowing him to wear a yarmulke or a Sikh to carry the traditional dagger in his pocket.

    While I disagree with BKs particular reason for disallowing her employment, I think businesses should have to right to define the behavior and dress of their employers.

    Skirt/dress or whatever anyone else wants to call it BK has a written dress code and their employees should follow it.

    Religious tolerance is very important to me (most people who can have discussed religion with me can attest to that) however this is not a case of religious discrimination. If a person wants to work at a business they need to adapt to that businesses policies, not the other way around. Religion has no place in the workplace. Unless you work at a church. If your religion forbids you from doing something that a company requires then you shouldnt work there.

    It would be VERY little, if ANY, skin off BK's nose to just let her wear the skirt.
    No they are not over reacting. I ya want to work at a burger king this is the uniform you wear, and its pants. There are plenty of things I wish I could say or do that I do not because I work with the developmentally disabled.

    We have choices to make based on our employment. If YOU want to work at their establishment than YOU will dress accordingly, or go work somewhere else, and wear your skirt or whatever.

    Let her have the skirt and everyone else will say I want my nose ring, want my gauges. Burger King should reserve the right to have its employees dress and look the way they wish. If someone dsagrees don't f-ing work there. There are plenty of people who are looking for work who care far more about the money than what they look like while they are working.

    No. You made the claim. Now back it up. Show us studies on DNA and religion being linked.

    Other than their pesky little dress code.

    and the manager said she could wear it.
    As stated only by 1 person who won't be able to prove it with anything other than her word. It's her word's against the manager's.

    Subjective.

    Exactly ... why anybody would want want to push their religious ideas down their throats?

    Go work in your Church .... You might get paid there too.

    The rational reason is that it violated company policy. She shouldnt be allowed to force a business to change their policies because of her beliefs. I would agree that it would be no real harm in letting her wear the skirt, but also no real harm in allowing people to wear their street clothes at work, or a number of other things. They have a written policy stating their dress code. I dont see where they put anything in writing allowing her the exception. We dont even know they actually even said she could wear it, and even if they did they have the right to enforce the policy. Dicks or not, they have that right and they are not discriminating against her religion. She is trying to force it on them..
