It's pretty reasonable for an employer to expect all employees to conform to a dress code.
    I say its foolish because it has no bearing on whether I will purchase my food there or not.

    I agree with dress codes, but I don't care about pants vs. skirts.

    Again though, they have the right to fire her.

    It's not foolish because companies establish dress codes in order to track inventory (for uniforms), uniformity, similar images across different markets etc.

    Again, pants vs. skirts wouldn't be part of my business model. I guess there is no point in arguing about this.

Do you file a lawsuit based on religious discrimination?
    In that scenario her religious beliefs are interfering with her job performance.

    It all depends on what she signed when she took the job. For the record, though, dresses, skirts, or any loose or hanging style clothing is generally not legal in food service, and for good reasons.

    There's no reason to refuse a Jew the right to wear a yamulka if it won't impair his ability to work safety.

    There's no reason to deny a Penecostal woman the right to wear a long skirt if it won't impair her ability to work safely.


    No reason at all.... other than just hateful dick-ishness.
    I tend to agree with your posts more often than not, but this is one where I do not agree,

    When it comes to employment and employers/employees, My opinion is that an establishment should not feel they are forced into making exceptions for people for any personal expression. I feel that a person who wants to alter the uniform or dress code for their personal reasons is being selfish. Oh, here I am, look at me, I am special and I am gonna wear a skirt... BS. If wearing the skirt is so important than do so where the job does not have a uniform or a set dress code.

    When on the clock, you are a representative of the establishment, and you are getting paid to be just that, and nothing else. If that establishment has a uniform or specific dress code, it should be enforced with conformity for all who work there. Making minor exceptions for someone is just inviting trouble. It's always going to be subjective, and when one worker sees another worker getting an exception, they are going to push for their own. Then it will become a battle of who gets the biggest exception to the rules. Then it will get even more muddy when someone will attempt to sue because THEY were being denied their right to self expression while others did get the right.

    Personal expression should be done on personal time IMO. Or find the employment where they can do just that if it is so important that they need their personal expression 24/7. Making employers bend rules just sets off firestorms and we see this all the time. I do only agree with the woman who was at 1st told that she could, then later denied. But she never should have felt the need to ask because when you go into a job like fast food, you already know full well that you are expected to wear the uniform and maintain the dress code. Still selfish on the part of people to ask for exceptions.

    Why?

    It's simple...she brakes the dress code + she is rightfully fired + she doesn't like it + she wants money + she sues.

    That's it in a nutshell

    What would your thoughts be if this was a store owned by a Muslim and the owner required all women employees to wear a hijab and dress below their knees?
