    How is it a safety hazard?

    Think about a burka at Hooters( I have never been to one but get the general idea.)
    If she is wearing a burka, she wouldn't be applying at Hooters. Let's get serious here.

    There are a lot of asymmetrical objects in that environment which could get caught on a skirt and it is a rather fast paced business with employees constantly brushing by each other.

    Imagine she is walking and her skirt catches the handle of a lower cabinet door and opens it while someone is walking behind her with a batch of hot fries or coffee.
    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)

    I know. I'm an atheist defending a ridiculous religious dress code.

    If they wanted to compromise let her wear the skirt but have it pinned in some way that it cannot fly very far from her body while she is working.

    The bigger hazard would be someone walking around with a batch of hot fries dripping oil all over the floor.

    People don't walk around with hot coffee either. It is made in the same spot it is poured from.

    But to follow your logic, maybe they shouldn't wear shoes. OMG, what if a shoelace comes untied and someone trips and does a bellyflop into the frier?

    actually, i believe the EEOC investigated and found her presentation to have been accurate. that she shared with the burger king hiring official that her religion would require her to wear a long skirt instead of the standard issue pants, and he agreed to make such accommodation when he hired her

    Yeah, and I'm a Christian that believes BK should be able to enforce it's own uniform requirements.

    It isn't a burden to BK to make this accommodation. If it were, they wouldn't have to make the accommodation.
