    I think both sides take these issues way too far. The ones who are offended by every single religious symbol they see, and the ones who constantly whine about perceived injustices to their religious freedom. It's just getting way out of hand lately IMO.

    exactly my point. when you push something like this into law you are forced to honor kavoozle too. So you would then have to honor the orange hair.

    My point is that there is no harm in BK allowing her to wear her skirt. No harm, no foul.

    HOWEVER there is harm in the government dictating dress codes. Again you cannot pick and choose which beliefs you honor. This easily could lead to businesses having one dress code for christians, one for mormons, one for jews, one for muslims, one for athiests, one for kavoozle's followers, ect ect ANd what then.. We have separate but equal dress codes? and what if the jews start thinking the muslims get preferential treatment and so on and so forth. There would be no end if we allow the government to dictate businesses decisions such as dress code.

    I'm very passionate about this subject, because I have seen FAR too many people abused by their employer, and feel like they had to just "take it" because they feared they could not find another job that would pay adequately. I've had to comfort too many crying female employees who'd been badly mistreated by their boss to find this at all amusing. I've seen too many people fired, losing their livelihood, for total bull**** that amounted to "didn't kiss the boss' ass nicely enough", who spent months or in some cases YEARS trying to find a decent job in the aftermath.

    I guess some of you have been lucky not to have to deal with crap like this, but if you haven't seen it I'm telling you it is everywhere these days.

    No one should be allowed to abuse, mistreat or trample the rights of a citizen just because they are an employer.

    On that note, g'nite.
    I have seen some pretty loaded bull**** in my time, but it's NOT a right violation. Chill the **** out.

    I think employers should be able to ban whatever clothing and/or jewelry they choose, and they can require mohawks and Spaghetti ornaments if they want. Clown shoes required and no cross allowed? Sounds reasonable to me, whatevs; not my business.

    I've never heard anything either. But I've also not actually thought about this at all until this thread. I do know that in the '70's, nurses wearing pants was a huge debate that was won on practicalities.

    if this woman had been hired, and she explained to the person with hiring AUTHORITY, that she had a physical limitation which prevented her from lifting more than 20 pounds
    and the employer accommodated her medical need, that employer could not later compel her to lift more than 20 pounds in the course of fulfilling her job requirements


    these are reasonable accommodations that the employers have entered into
    if the accommodations required of the (prospective) employee are such that the employer finds that they are unreasonable, then the employer should not agree to them


    this woman's case is made stronger because the BK representative possessing hiring authority authorized the religious accommodation
    but, if she were not hired because she required an apparel accommodation for religious reasons, one which BK insisted they could not approve, the pentacost would still have a case of employment discrimination based on her religion, until BK could show that her necessary accommodation was not one that BK would find reasonable

    I think it's just crazy to have to make these kinds of accommodations at work or school. A business cannot be expected to accommodate everybody. Nobody can do that. It is impossible, and lines have to be drawn.

    I still say If you are going to work somewhere then check if they line up with your beliefs to begin with. How is this even hard?
