    Your deep and vicious hate for religion is duly noted. She was hired and told she could wear the skirt. As a cashier there could be no safety issues to hinder her being able to perform the job.

    That is not what happened, "according to the EEOCís lawsuit, (Civil Action No. 3:12-cv-03169-M), filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, Ashanti McShan, a member of the Pentecostal Church, adheres to an interpretation of the scripture about the wearing of clothing that is befitting of specific gender. She informed the company of this aspect of her faith during the job interview, and was told that she could work in a skirt instead of the Burger King uniform pants. However, the EEOC said, when Ms. McShan arrived at orientation, she was told by store management that her skirt was an unacceptable alternative and subsequently sent home"

    In this case why should BK have to follow Title VII? Why should BK have to alter thier decades old dress code for one girl that knew she was applying for a job that had a dress code that went against her religious beliefs? Does the girl not have some accountability in any of this?

    So? Obviously the first EMPLOYEE who told her it was okay was mistaken. Mix-ups happen all the time.

    So none of the cashiers ever have to go through the kitchen?

    I once worked at a Mc'Donalds before, a company that is run basically the same as BK from what I can tell and it was common for an employee to be trained in several positions besides the primary one that they were hired for. My wife did work at a BK so comparing experiances has shown me that this is true.

    Maybe BK should terminate the employee who first told this woman it was okay for not knowing they have a dress code. Who knows? Maybe he wasn't even paying attention to her, and was just like "yeah, yeah, that's fine." A "verbal" contract could be pretty ambiguous. That's why you should always have agreements written in clear legal terms.

    People should wear what they choose - or nothing, if they prefer. There's a bloke over here being persecuted for walking round the country nude: not to my taste, but if he feels happier that way, fine!

    Work is an entirely different scenario.

    Or, on the other side, BK would be accused of being Islamaphobic and intolerant.

    More than likely.
