    thansk for providing this. I still beleive discarding their dress code could be detrimental to their business. Making this exception basically gives anyone the right to dress how they want anywhere they want and strips employers of the right to have uniforms or dress codes.

    Of course there's variation in opinion on this...some say all pants are men's clothing, while others make a distinction between a man's suit and a woman's pants suit.

    My personal take on the issue is that if women can't ever wear any kind of pants, then Scots need to put their Kilts away.

    no it wasn't and largely no they didn't. in fact, the higher wages of the 1930's is one of the reasons we had such higher unemployment.

    What use political liberty if you are, for all intents and purposes, a slave to your employer?
    slaves can't leave. employers should be as free to fire for any reason as employees are free to quit. that's called free trade.

    and

    Demanding an employer accomodate some religions dress code?

    It also use to be law that blacks couldn't drink from the same fountain as whites.

    IE just because it is law does not mean that it is right.

    And where does this crap end? Are we going to let people wear pasta strainers on their heads because they are pastafarians? Do people have to accommodate every idiotic request?

    'Pastafarian' wins religious freedom right to wear pasta strainer for driving licence - Telegraph

    "'Pastafarian' wins religious freedom right to wear pasta strainer for driving licence
    An Austrian has won the right to be photographed wearing a pasta strainer for his driving licence on grounds of religious freedom."

    As with anything else in the Rights debate it depends on what right is being "violated" and whether the other persons rights supersede the other persons rights or not.

    It doesn't have to be all or nothing. It doens't have to be thrown out.

    Accomodation is allowing certain exceptions for certain specific and important reasons.
    First, it has to be an IMPORTANT reason... like "i have to wear a skirt for religious reasons"... OR "I can't wear the company shoes, I have to wear orthotic shoes because of a MEDICAL condition".
    Second, it has to be proveable... as in, check to see if her version of Pentecostal actually requires women to wear skirts on pain of severe judgement... yes.... check to see if the guy with the shoes has a doctor that will confirm he must wear his non-dress-code orthotic shoes for a medical condition...
    Thirdly, make it plain this is an allowed EXCEPTION to the general rules made for a specific reason, not a discarding of the rules and a free-for-all where everyone can claim "Arkvoozle came to me in a dream last night and told me I must always wear this fake orange hair, or the Illuminati will assassinate me" and similar bull****.

    A bogus claim made in the 1964 bill to be sure.

    This story is such bull**** on both sides.

    You don't sue because a given place won't let you wear a skirt, and the business could very, very easily just allow long black skirts.
