    She would lose, as Hooters has been sued over its dress requirements many times before and won them all (If I recall correctly)

    According to your logic, Muslim women can apply for jobs at Hooters and then sue when they are forced to dress in a manner they find unacceptable due to their religion.

    Well, and seriously, where does it end? What if someone's religion required that they work naked. Should that be accommodated as well?

    It is dissapointing when employers refuse to make reasonable concessions to employees in order to respect their religious values.

    What would have been the harm in allowing her to wear a dress? Who would have been harmed?

    Is there such a religion? If so, we need to get moving and change our Constitution and make it our national religion.

    Why should any company have to accomodate anyones religious views? What if the owner of the companies religious view was that all women should wear hijab's? Should he be forced to discard his own personal religious beliefs in order to accomodate someone else's religion?

    According to pro-BK on this thread, BK would have come under the direct control of the Pope, the constitution would have burst into flames, terrorists would have bombed our children's schools, global worming, dogs and cats living together, total anarchy!

    No, it's about etiquette and setting standards at the workplace. If someone's religion does not allow them to wear pants, that is not BK's problem.

    Only if Obama wins in November.

    Seriously, wearing a skirt falls under "reasonable" accomodation, IMO. The only possible thing I can think why you shouldn't be able to wear a skirt is that the oil could potentially splatter up the skirt, causing a serious burn. That's unlikely (but I suppose it's possible).
