    actually, she does

    Then she never needed to ask permission, BK had no choice in the matter and there's no point in this entire thread.

    /thread
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    no. she did the correct thing
    she notified the employer of her religious practices and the employer accommodated her
    until it did not
    THAT is why this thread exists

    I think the skirts dress code is ridiculous, but it doesn't harm anyone.

    On a side note, I've always wanted to work at a restaurant and get fired for telling someone that the dish they are asking about is horrible. Then I can sue the company for requiring me to break a religious commandment by bearing false witness.

    In my humble opinion: -What's good for the goose is good for the gander -


    No jihab, no long dresses.... what's fair is fair.

    Apparently, it never did because she was terminated on her first day of work.

    This lawsuit won't win on the simple basis that the employers are not discriminating against any particular belief. They are discriminating against those who will not follow company policy.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Are Rastafarians entitled to smoke weed at work? As part of the requirement of their faith, of course.
