    Funny, I've never heard of a Christian woman who wouldn't wear pants before. I must be out of the loop.

    You're the one being absurd, sir. Are you going to try to claim that there is not and never has been sexual abuse of employees by their bosses?

    There are laws to prevent employers from abusing employees. Employers do not get to have it all their way. Reasonable accomodation for religious issues is such a law, whether you like it or not.

    There are rules about how employers can treat employees... get over it. They are employees, NOT SLAVES.
    Unless you can show me a right violation I will not agree with you on this case and furthermore working for someone is not slavery, so don't even go there.

    Quite fortunately this is not the way things work in this very fact sensitive and labor intensive situation.

    I highly doubt this teen was fired because of her religion.

    Personally from I know about this and it ain't much I think the lady doesn't have a hope in hell of winning this.

    Is it part of the Christian religion that women cannot wear pants?

    I doubt very seriously that no job would accomodate her. I'm sure her church has thier hands in a few buisnesses which would hire her.

    Also there ARE jobs out there. Even jobs which have no dress requirement. I am working at one. And I am one of those people who most employers would take a look at the application and throw it away. I have a spotty job history, a criminal record, and hadn't worked for 7 years. Yet I still found a job. Plus I happen to know that N. Dakota is looking for people and Alabama and California needs people to work the fields.

    demanding that BK disgard their uniform dress code and allow employees to dress however they wish is not reasonable if such a law exists.
