    No, nor should they have to accommodate this woman's beliefs, they should have told her during the interview that she had to follow the dress code. They didn't. That's the difference.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Then you don't put them in a position of authority. Stop trying to make excuses, they screwed up, they have to deal with it.

    How would they know until the employee messes up, like what apparently happened in this situation?

    Then you deal with that employee, but they were still acting from a position of authority that you put them into and they still speak for your company.

    When she showed up for orientation, they sent her home and told her to put pants on because that is the dress code, and if the employee was in ERROR, then he or she is not speaking for the company because they are wrong. Just because an employee gives out information that isn't true about his company doesn't mean the company has to back it up.

    Except that the the person who hired her does not set company policy. As such he could not make such a promise. The employee should be fired.

    There is a big big difference between a chemical imbalance or genetic coding that makes you feel things and thinking that god is going to be angry with you just because you wear pants. As ChrisL said, apples and oranges.

    Is the the ONLY arguement you have? "The law is against it so it must be bad!" Can you not give me any other reason? Laws can be wrong. Our history has shown that.

    So a whole company is responsible for the actions of ONE person?

    But this employee does not have the authority to change company policy. Just because you put someone in charge of some people does not mean that you put them in charge of your policy.
