    I wasnt aware of that. How do you know that at the orientation she wasnt told that the reason for the pants was safety? Or maybe, BK just insists that everyone wear pants. Isnt that their right?
    They can have a dress code, but, the implementation of that dress code does not supersede their legal requirements and responsibilities pursuant to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

    Pants are not exclusively mens clothing, so it is really as simple as that. Besides, if you watch Charleton Heston in The Ten Commandments, he walked around all the time in a dress. So maybe this girl has her religion all back asswards

    Charlton Heston ....seriously?????

    Except no one at BK said that she would not be hired because of her religion, nor did any of them say that she was fired because of it. She was fired because she thought her religion superceded a private companies dress code. A dress code that has been in effect for longer than she's been alive.

    I dont see how requiring pant to be worn is a violation since pants are not exclusively male clothing.

    Dude, the guy wore a dress throughout the entire movie. He never once wore pants. No one did.

    It seems like a really idiotic rule. I don't see any reason why they shouldn't accommodate her, especially when the employee who interviewed her told her she could wear the skirt. That being said, a lawsuit is going a bit far. It's a fast food job, there are plenty of others out there.

    No need. The girl never claimed that BK management told her she was not being hired because she was Pentecostal.

    I have posted and directed you to the EEOC press release outlining their position in addition to the lawsuit and it's language in response to your position previously. Kindly review these documents, should you wish to discuss these issues further. Moreover, the rewording of your issue is incorrect. The women does not think her religion supersedes a private dress code/company policy. That policy must fall in line with what BK agreed to when they decided to hire the requisite number of employees and engage in activities described in "TITLE 42 - THE PUBLIC HEALTH AND WELFARE, CHAPTER 21 - CIVIL RIGHTS, SUBCHAPTER VI - EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES.

    The transcript of what? What BK said? I'm just going by the information that is available in the OP. Which clearly states that the person doing the hiring said she could wear the skirt and then the employee doing the orientation told her to go home at which point the girl tried to explain why she was wearing a skirt. The guy doing the orientation obviously told her to go home before her explanation which means he obviously did not know it had anything to do with her religion. And since the guy doing the hiring did hire her it is obvious that he didn't hire her because of her religious practices (hope that bit there made sense..i've been awake since midnight), even though Connery's post explicitly says that "If the interviewer said BK will not hire her because of her religious practice".

    As you can see no transcript is needed.

    Get over it!

    If you are a religious fundamentalist, why not work in a place that wont give you any trouble? why insist on going to places where your way of dressing will rub the people the wrong way?


    What's wrong with these people?

    There is nothing wrong with "these" people. "These" people are you and me and anyone who is in the work force in the US and this is not just about religion, but, a variety of categories and protected classes. Just because one is paying a wage it does not give them "carte blanche" to run rough shod over their employees rights. The employer is running a business in the US which has various laws which the employer must follow. Should the employer wish to have implement their own internal rules they cannot run counter to laws which are promulgated to protect the rights of those that are employed, patronize, or use the goods and services regarding that business.

    Yes, but we have to be reasonable. Employers cannot be expected to accommodate everyone's religious beliefs. That is unreasonable. This is just another reason why I can support separation of church and state (although I think people get way too carried out with that sometimes too).
