    They dress to cover themselves for the sake of modesty.
    But if they allow one female employee to wear a skirt, they must give all female employees the option to wear a skirt. The other female employees may decide to wear skirts that are shorter.

    If this is true then I would have to take her side on the issue.

    But I'd imagine it would be difficult for her to win if it was a he said she said issue and the official dress code is clear.

    Requiring them to wear skirts of a certain material would be fine. That would still abide by Title VII and not be a burden to the business where safety is a concern.

    They could regulate the length of skirt.

    I know I have seen employees in skirts at McDonalds. I never eat at Wendys.

    I run a business I dont have a dress code execept for that it be proffesional for our field, and complies with our clients codes. Most of my clients have been changing their codes this year to mandate FR clothing (fire retardent, I work about the oil patches in California) Chevron, Occidental, et al.. Dont ask why. I will just start spouting obsenities. Anywho FR clothing is significantly heavier than the typical hot weather clothing we use. We work in 110 degree weather rountinely in the summer. I think you can see were this is going. Now I comply fully with their rules. Its their property I want their business. That said I have to bill them more time and increase my rates to cover the added expense of the clothing and the longer time it takes me or my subs to do the job because I have to take more frequent breaks to keep from overheating. They aint happy about that. I told them it was their decision to intitute the new policy and I have to cover costs. I sure as hell dont want heat stoke for me or my subs, and they dont either its expensive. I am not eating those costs every time mandate something new, which is frequent. They were unhappy but understood. But I think you can begin to see why a one size fits all dres code for any company is rather foolish. That said I am all for a company to have whatever dress code they desire. The only thing I see with this particular case that I can agree with government on is the employer said it would be ok for the young woman to were the skirt, then reneged. The woman was damaged, because she thought she had a job. She has the right to recover those damages, though to be blunt arent much. Thats my only sticking point.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    I hear what you're saying, but I still think it should be the choice of the business as to whether or not they want to change a dress code to accommodate someone's personal religious beliefs. Okay, so maybe the skirt isn't such a big deal, but it is the principle.

    I'm going to be stubborn about this.
