    I'm not sure what the problem is here. You should be able to sue salesmen for misinformation.

    I should also be able to sue you for claiming no monetary loss. She was fired. That's a loss of future revenue.

    Many employers have a probationary period where they can dismiss you or fire you with no fault. The article isn't very clear, but to go to orientation I'm sure she had been officially put on their books as an employee beginning her training which means she was most likely terminated from her job. Assuming the girl's story is correct then Burger King is in the wrong. If a future company runs a background check on her they may see that she was fired or dismissed which will negatively impact her future job search. If they say one thing and then reverse themselves and fire an employee then they should be held liable for damages.

    Sure you are. Again, read the article. It'll help you a ton. She claims she was told 1 thing. When she went to the training - she was corrected. She refused to change. She was fired. Do you not understand that much yet?

    I do understand that much, I would ask you to read your own post and realize that she was told 1 thing and was acting in accordance with what she was told. She made it clear (according to her story) that she must wear a skirt for religious reasons and that it isn't negotiable. For them to tell her that it was alright to do so and then reverse that during her first day and fire her then they are in the wrong.

    Still citing what she claims she was told as fact? Here digsbe - I'll make it easier for you:

    1. She claims she was told one thing.
    2. We know for a fact she was told to wear pants when she got to training.
    3. Verbal contracts - specially the unverifiable kind - DON'T trump company policy.
    4. You can't claim monetary damages from a place where you didn't work at.
    5. The company has zero obligation to honor a verbal contract made by somebody who did not represent the company's HR department.

    /end thread.

    What ends the thread is the elitism of exploiting how people aren't born with video cameras out of their eyes and microphones out of their ears. It compels the vulnerable to assume the risk of information overload such that they become intimidated due to an inability to record evidence.

    All the more reason for a socially conservative society where people are only treated as adults (and can work or employ others) after graduating a rite of passage.

    I think it would be hilarious if Burger King gave her a Catholic Bible for compensation. A King James version would be too faux pas.
    My main function as a Christian is to be the biggest possible jerk as a demonstration of the awe found in God's Grace and Forgiveness. (That love part comes in to play at some point)

    Let's say you take a job as a dancer at a strip club. Three months later you become a born again Christian. You want to keep your job, but at this point you are dancing without stripping because of your religious beliefs. The owner of the strip club fires you. Do you file a lawsuit based on religious discrimination?
