    Pentecostal women wear mid-calf to ankle-length skirts... full protection for the legs. I just don't see where it would be any skin off BK's nose to go with it.

    And you'd be wrong - when I first joined the forum - I thought the hijab was mandatory - when I actually spoke to Muslim members of the forum, I found out it was a cultural thing.

    I agree with you. Forget I posted.
    Actually, it means everything, since it was the interviewer who told her that she could wear the skirt. That's not a small thing, the girl did everything right by telling her employer during the interview, and when the employer agreed to it a verbal contract was made.

    Pretty clear cut case of unfair discrimination

    and if she really was told it wouldnt be an issue during her interview not only is it a homerun case its a grand slam.

    Policing in a long skirt would be hard, firefighting would be impossible..... but cooking and serving burgers in a long skirt is just totally a non-issue. It does not impede her ability to do this in any way.

    She should sue their brains out like every other religion would do under the same circumstances.....

    The worst part about suing for discrimination is that the overwhelming majority of cases don't even make it to court because there is not sufficient evidence.

    Sure they do. Just as christians sue anybody for any bitchy reason. That doesn't mean they win. If you can show us that "track record" it'd be great though.
