    Like the thread jack attempt that you applied when you brought abortion into the thread?

    Im sorry but allowing someone to wear a skirt to work isnt elevating their religion over others. If you ask me not accommodating her on this one meaningless issue is doing the exact opposite.

    Has a brand of cleaner (like Windex) in the work truck that we don't have office Hazmat sheets for? Written up, maybe suspended.
    Insubordination, back-talk, arguing with supervisor? Quick ticket out the door.

    Hell I can get fired for getting a speeding ticket IN MY PERSONAL VEHCILE ON MY OWN TIME. One ticket.

    I'm not saying I disagree with most of these rules, but what I am saying is that a few examples clearly show you where the power is in the employer-employee relationship, and who it is that needs to be restrained against abusing the person-of-lesser-power in the relationship.

    Not long ago an employee was fired for going on Facebook on the office computer. She was fired for this BY a corporate supervisor who I've seen playing Angry Birds (or some such crap) on the same computer.

    One standard for the boss, another for the peons.
    So two wrongs make a right?

They need to pay her a small sum, and provide a great referance, to make this go away. Otherwise this gona be expensive.

    But that is what is being contested. The employer (BK) is not being allowed to set the dress code for this one employee just because her religion happens to be against the dress code.

    Religion is.

    Wasting company time directly, measurably harms the company. A skirt does not.

    How do you folks expect us to take you seriously when it comes to "under God" or "in God we trust" when you freak out over a skirt?

    Kind of like how not allowing an employer to discriminate against employees race, sexual orientation, and gender is pushing your beliefs on employers right?
