    This appears to violate her religious rights.

    What if - what if - what if. The rules I'm dealing with are the ones that exist. They are the same for everyone who wants to work for Burger King.
    There should be no issue with a person wearing religious whatever in the workplace as long as it does not present a safety hazard. However, if the applicant knows going from the interview that employees are required to dress in a manner that would interfere with said applicant's religious beliefs, the employer should not be required to accommodate the religious dress code of applicant once the applicant becomes an employee.

    If it is MY business, and I have established dress codes, there's no way I should have to make religious dress code exceptions as long as the requirements were clear prior to the employee accepting a position working for me.

    What's Hooters if employees are dressed like Hester Prynne? That'd be a hell of buzz kill for a lot of beer drinking guys. You might expect my Hooter franchise to experience a downturn in profits.

    Good luck proving the existence of a verbal contract.

    Do you know the difference between "suing" and "suing and winning"? I can sue people right and left. Doesn't mean much if the lawsuits are tossed out. You made a claim, time to back it up.

    I would like to hear the interviewers side of the story. I find it hard to believe that a manager would not know BKs dress code. But even if the interviewer did tell the girl she could wear a dress that wouldnt trump a written dress code, nor do I see any valid reason here for a lawsuit against BK. The girl can work there, I suppose, if she wears the proper uniform. So as much as it pains me to say so, Hatuey is right. Now, if I could only get him to apply the same principle to other instances of employer/employee relationships....

    Frankly, I'm surprised BK doesn't have this covered somehow in the written contract with employees.

    The whole matter probably is a storm in a teacup, in that a lot of companies insist on a uniform dress code for purely business reasons, such as airlines etc....

    It is taking political correctness too far to think otherwise and those who feel disadvantaged probably have no sensible alternative than either to conform or seek employment elsewhere.

    I agree with you. Forget I posted.
    At one point, the uniform suppliers did offer skirts.
