    I would hope health code violations. No offense to your nudity religion, but I don't want naked people to serve my food to me.

    Given that, couldn't they have just hired her back and avoided the whole problem to begin with?

    That's interesting! But obviously out government does pretty much whatever it wants to using loop holes and other shady methods. This is probably okay because it is not really supporting one religion over another; it is simply about religious "discrimination" (which I don't consider this particular case to be at all).

    Did they actually even fire her. I thought they just told her to go home and change into pants when she showed up for orientation. Did she even actually work there?

    Did she give them a chance to?

    But honestly I still believe that it is wrong morally to require any buisness to accomodate any persons religious beliefs. Yes no buisness should not hire someone because of thier belief, but they shouldn't have to accomodate thier beliefs.

    I pos over and over again my thoughts on professionalism - where I've gone after people who wear braids and people who have afros and everyone still thinks this is an attack on this dumb bitch's religion and not her complete lack of professionalism. I'm hurt people.
    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

    I am just assuming they fired her. That is actually a good question. DID they fire her or did she just not show up for work because she didn't want to comply with the dress code? Did she even attempt to work things out before running to the EEOC?

    Yes. They would. And I see no problem with that.
