Religious Teen Sues Burger King Over Uniform

teen sues burger king

A teen in Texas has filed a lawsuit against Burger King for religious discrimination.

Ashanti McShan claims that she was fired from her job after she showed up to work in a long skirt instead of black pants. McShan, a Pentacostal Christian, says that her religion forbids her to wear men’s clothing. McShan also said that when she applied for the job in August, 2010, she made it clear that she would not be wearing black pants to work. Burger King, at the time, allegedly told the 17-year-old that it wouldn’t be a problem.

But when McShan showed up to her orientation, the manager asked her to leave because she was not wearing the required uniform.

The lawsuit reads: “The result of the foregoing practices has been to deprive Ashanti McShan of equal employment opportunities because of her religious beliefs and observances as a Christian Pentecostal.”

Attorney Meaghan Shepard, who is representing McShan, said that the case was pretty clean cut. According to Shepard, McShan’s request to wear a long skit instead of pants was reasonable and would not have hindered her abilities to work at Burger King in anyway.

Shepard said:

“The legal standard is ‘undue hardship,’ and in this instance it was a very simple request — to be able to wear a long black skirt and not black pants — and it was initially granted. And then she shows up at orientation, on time, and is then told by the manager to leave and that she couldn’t wear a skirt. She was responsible, tried to get in touch with someone higher in the franchise, and they never responded to her. In our eyes, it was so clear-cut. She’s a very sweet, articulate young lady who was just trying to work her senior year in high school.”

Burger King has not commented about the lawsuit.

Do you think this is religious discrimination?

    this country should have never allowed this cross dressing from the start, women wear dresses and men ware pants, that is the way it used to be.

  2. Tony Hubbard

    Her religion forbids her from wearing men's clothing. Uhh, last I knew they made black pants for women. Wonder what race she is?

  3. Lucius Austin

    As David Bowie once stated, "I don't wear ladies dresses. I wear men's dresses".
    Ther are such things as women's pants, shirts, shoes, etc.
    This person has to realize that when you work for a company such as Burger King, your have to comply to their wardrobe standards, period.
    Wearing a long dress in a work atmosphere like that can be a hazard, and that's the real reason she has to comply with the stated wardrobe rules.
    She would lose in this case.

    if she is truly following her religious beliefs then why is she working? she is a woman and should not be working which is traditionally for a man to do the work she should stay home uneducated if that is her religious beliefs… sound like just another attempt for religious fanticism!

  7. Susan Jones

    I have worked at several places where the Pentecostal women have worn skirts. It has never been a problem. The manager should have reviewed it with the corporate office before agreeing to hire her in the first place. Sounds like the managers fault. Burger King Corporate should have backed the teen.

  8. Daphne Richardson

    What does her race matter? People are so evil that you focus on the wrong thing. She is just saying that it is her belief and respect that everyone is not the same. Life would be boring if we were.

  9. Julian Axworthy

    might make sense if you were actually a lawyer but its just your opinion. I think otherwise and I think her request is not unreasonable. I think she wins

  10. Wayne Earle

    She stated she couldn't wear men's clothing. So wear women's pants. What's the problem?

    There are many other occupations she can wear her wardrobe of choice. Mabye can find employment with the Pentacostal Church.
    Eventually, she will have to forgo her so-called religious beliefs and go to work.
    You can't eat religious scriptures.

  14. MissMerricka Seabrooks

    while you are correct, there are laws that protect her and she since she [says] she disclosed the dress code information prior to showing up for orientation and she was still sent home, i also agree that she will win. as afrancis1025 said though….my comment is not really relevant either since its not my lawsuit. just an opinion of mine though.

  15. MissMerricka Seabrooks

    her race is irrelevant, but just for the record, there are Christian Pentecostals of all different races. the issue is that she is being denied work based on her clothing, which is protected under the Constitution BECAUSE her clothing is a part of her religion. no different than a jewish worker wearing his kippah or an arab worker wearing their hijab.

  16. MissMerricka Seabrooks

    the problem is that pants are against her religion. regardless of how they are "tailored" to suit a man or woman, in the pentecostal religion, women wear NO pants of any kind….long skirts and dresses only.

  17. Deborah Sommer

    They owe her something for promising her a job and agreeing to her requirements. But not much. This is ridiculous.
    The job pays very little. Perhaps they could give her some cash off coupons and resolve her hurt feelings.

  18. Ron Pickard

    I am a Pentecostal Pastor. We abide by the moral law (not Mosaic ceremonial law) of Deuteronomy 22:15 where a man does not wear that which pertaineth to a woman nor the woman the man. Except the last 100 years or so of history, women never wore a divided garment. The ceremonial laws have been fulfilled, but the moral laws of God don't ever change. We have the Biblical belief and preference that our congregational members abide by such. (we call it a standard of Holiness) This young lady (whoever she is) has the same right to practice her religious preference the same as any one of you do and should not be ostracized for it. I have witnessed our ladies working all kinds of jobs in skirts, including building mobile homes. I have seen our ladies working in long skirts at McDonalds, so Burger King has no right to discriminate.

  19. Steve Womack

    Really its a franchise! They have standards….If you can't deal with the simple uniform in witch all of us deal with in our job, whether a tie or kaki's. DON'T WORK THERE!

  20. Jessica Vanderbrink

    I think that if they told her she could wear the skirt, then she should be able to wear the skirt. But I also think that if they would have refused her request to begin with, because they have their policies, they wouldn't have been in the wrong.

  21. Tony Hubbard

    No, the problem is she's trying to gain monetarily for something she has complete control over. She can buy women's black pants. People just want to use anything they can to sue someone anymore and they LOVE to use religion for their reason.

  22. Jerren Young

    Pentecostal women work in restaurants all the time. There are entire restaurants owned and staffed by Pentecostal women around here. They all wear long skirts. If this was a Muslim woman wanting to wear a head covering, the libs would be screaming bloody murder and the place would get picketed. She asked before she was hired and they consented. Now deal with it BK or pay up in court.

  23. Lavontoinette Middleton

    umm she won't lose. I use to work for Burger King, and they do allow the female employees to wear skirts if they choose to. the skirts are not long. they go a little past the knees. so i see this working out in her favor cause that is discrimination.

  24. Ron Pickard

    My wife was one of them working. I was working (in Arkansas) in metal one and she was in final finish and they later promoted her to a HUD inspector. The factory said it could not be done but we proved to them otherwise.

    All the Pentacostal Christians I know also don't beleive in suing people. Not just christians but anyone. Something don't seem right about this. However She shouldn't have a problem working in burger king in a long skirt.After all she would be just doing janitoral work, cooking or serving food. Around here where I am from it isn't unusual to see a woman or teen in a long skirt working in fast food etc… as they make allowances for that.

  27. Don DeMarco

    Boom, quick way to get BK to pay for my college. Americans are just sue crazy. You want everything given to you because your feelings are hurt or you tried and failed.

  28. MissMerricka Seabrooks

    no dollar amount has been provided so you dont know what she is suing for….not only that, it has nothing to do with her being able to buy "womens" black pants. Pentecostal women are not permitted to wear pants of ANY kind…regardless of them being mens or womens. if she really did tell the manager when she was hired and he ok'd it but then she got sent home upon arriving at orientation, this was obviously a break down in communication on the part of Burger King….a break down for which THEY are to be held liable. while this girl, whoever she is, may recover financially, who are you to say that she was not motivated by her religion as opposed to money? it would probably help if you use google for 5 minutes or so and look up a few facts about the Constitutional protection against discrimination that is afforded to EVERY American, regardless of race, as well as the pentecostal religion. could be a little enlightening for you. :^)

    Burger King could let female employees choose black pants or black skirts. The only problem I can think of with the long skirt is the risk of tripping over the hem. Are you listening BK Management?

  30. John Oates

    there are reasons for having uniform policies. Uniform means everyone is uniform in dress. As a former Restaurant Manager there is a reason for not allowing skirts. 1st of all if you allow one person a break everyone wants to dress their way. Safety is the biggest issue. A skirt gets caught in doors and well as moving machine parts. Same with cleaning which requires climbing up ladders, bending over crawling under tables.

  31. John Oates

    then tell her to get a job at McDonalds or go build a house in her skirt. A policy is a policy and if you don't agree with it you should not work there.

    that person made a mistake she does not speak for Burger King. Have you never made a mistake? She is not a Muslim or obama would already be in the restaurant saving her job. He only helps Muslims.

  34. Susan Jones

    John Oates when a policy ignores a religious freedom, then the policy should be changed.

  35. Nancy Fox Cole

    If she doesn't want to wear the uniform that is required by EVERYONE to wear then she needs to find a job elsewhere. That is not discrimination.

  36. Brandon Craig

    And what SHE was doing is asking for special treatment because of her religious preference. That's discrimination as well.

  37. Diana Sandoval

    There is a reasons Why there is a uniform policy. Where ever you work there is going to be uniform requirement. You should leave your religion background at home. Work is work, and what you do at home us your business. anyways it doesn't say what they discuss in there interview was was written in stone. Sounds more like she said, he said thing …..mmm

  38. Russ Tillack

    Get a new religion… Or even better give up religion and join life. Put a pair of pants on. I guess God doesn't want women to wear pants so they are easier to be taken by theyre man. Barefoot and pregnant. Surprised your even allowed out of the house to work.

  39. Ron Pickard

    We are what we are inside and outside the church house. I do agree on one thing, if our preference in attire hinders us being able to perform a certain job then we look for other types of work, (don't ask us to be hypocritical and live something other than we preach and teach) but flipping burgers or running a cash register? Come on! I guarantee since there are 22 million of us, that they won't tell us that we can't eat there (spend our money) because of our attire.

    Not a religious issue at all, a manager or hring official, who had no right to do so, made a promise to her to let her wear a skirt, that person should be fired. Company policy mandates all employees must wear the prescribed uniform which includes pants. This is done for safety and hygene reasons, lesson to learn, don't make promises you can't keep, company policy was and still is the requirement and I would bet they provided documentation that stated such.

    she was fired during the employee orientation for not wearing the proper work uniform. religious or not, she should have complied with that reasonable request or quit her job, not sue the business on "religious" grounds.

    yes, BK was wrong for the mis-information, but I don't think they should be sued over it.that'll just drive costs up for the consumer.and what's with these religions and pants? not a good idea to wear a long skirt at a job anyway, it's a tripping hazard. they make pants for women.i don't see anything in the bible about pants.

  56. Lorenzo Ramsey

    I agree with most of you, but with one major caveat. The core of the issue is that Burger King allegedly hired her with the understanding that she would not be able to wear pants. With that understanding, then the reneged. If they had not agreed to do so in advance then it would be different.

    Burger King should have backed Burger King. The manager should have gotten reprimanded for making promises that he could not keep and the teen should go to work someplace where she can wear a skirt. This is not discrimination. Sounds more like a way to get a free college education.

  61. Mike Larson

    I do usually side on the Christian side on discrimination suits. Often, above other religions, Christianity is discriminated against and ridiculed. In this case however, Burger King has a standard uniform and if she can't due to her religious beliefs wear the uniform, then she needs to find another job that suits her beliefs. If she was successful in this suit, what would keep her from being suing Hooters for the same reason?

  62. Mark Andrew Holmes

    She knew what the uniform policy was going in, and went ahead with it anyway, and then of course she got fired. And now, here we go again, she's burning herself at the stake with as much publicity as she can get, "waaah, they're picking on me because I'm a Christian," adding to the ongoing Christitaliban pity party and making trouble for some more innocent people, who are likely cursing the day they first laid eyes on her.

    Lucius – Would you agree that the person doing the hiring should know the company standards? That knowledgeable person told her that it would NOT be a problem. As her attorney states, she showed up to orientation, ON TIME, then was told to leave due to the uniform issue. How is changing their mind at the last minute and utterly FAILING to notify her fair? There is simply no reason other than her religion to do that. Shouldn't the interviewer that misled her be fired too if Burger King's standards are oh so high? Shouldn't truthfulness be part of those standards?

    They've been selling womens pants for a few years now. If your applying for a job that has a strict dress code or uniforms, maybe it's just the wrong job and move on. wow you are sueing a fast food restaurant because you can't wear what you want, are you kidding me, get over yourself and pound some pavement and find a job you can wear a dress. I'm sure there are call center jobs or hey mcdonalds allows that sort of thing go there. geez get a life and quit the nonsense. should I sue the NAACP because it's just for Colored or negro college fund because its for af-am's. the answer is no, get over yourselves and just find a job and work.WELCOME TO THE UNITED STATES OF IF I DON'T GET WHAT I WANT I'LL WHINE OR SUE TILL I DO. GOD I want to move.

    James Wollard – I agree with you – Jesus is an idiot. Pentacostals obviously DO allow women to work. If they didn't, she wouldn't have applied for the job.

  95. Tony Bourne

    Why are we expected to coddle the religious? If they fired her for BEING Pentecostal, then I'd say she has a case. Ultimately they are firing her to not adhering to their dress code, which employers have a right to enforce, regardless of their employees' choice of invisible man belief.

    I'm rooting for the girl. She was smart enough to ask and make it clear beforehand and she was told it would be acceptable. If Burger King had said "no, sorry." from the beginning, they would have saved themselves this headache. The girl is totally in the right. Btw, what's up with all these fast food chains hating on people? That's why I stay away from corporations that big as much as I can.

    ABSOLUTELY ABSURD. This is NOT discrimination. It is another case of an employer who has specific rules and regulations that anyone who wants to work there – needs to follow. HELLO IMMATURE 12TH GRADER – here is a newsflash – the WORLD DOES NOT REVOLVE AROUND YOU! You knew the rules of the company and if you have issues with them – GO SOMEWHERE ELSE! Doesn't your religion and/or school teach you respect of others instead of if you don't like it SUE! Thank GOD you did not come to company. You can NOT HAVE VISIABLE tatoos, no low cut blouses, ENGLISH only, articulate command of the English language, cursive writing, electric typewriter, NO CELL PHONES allowed and guess what – women must wear appropriate business dress suits and men must wear pants (no dresses), normal hair (pinke, blue, purple need not apply) and last but not least, prefer "seasoned" (unfortunately you can't say seniors these days) workers with ethical behavior and "old school" values. If you can't comply – don't apply – wake up – I receive about 150 resumes a week – and not one had uses abbreviated words (like on text) and well spoken and written. Oh, I don't own a cell – I like to see and talk to REAL PEOPLE – and not push buttons to talk to USA. I am sure in your country of origination, you would NEVER sue your government for such nonsense – grow up and earn your money the old fashion way – work for it and be thankful for a job. I would never hire you – SUE ME.

    really, cash for hurt feelings. how about just sucking it up and put the effort into finding a job rather than suing over stupid skirts. wow just wow

    This story reminds me of a young lady I went to school with. A pentecostal girl that wore long skirts and her long, long hair always in a bun. Not an ugly girl by no means, but she did not draw attention to her appearance. You wouldn't look at her twice. When she graduated from high school and got out into the world, she became play mate of the month for playboy and fellows, play boy does not photography plain girls. I guess my message is to the younger fellows that are still in school, don't just look at the flashy surface of a lady, try to find the beauty in her that isn't flaunted for the rest of the world to see. I guess that goes for us older coots also.

  101. Christine Harrelson

    Certain parts of her job might ask her to walk up a ladder, to crawl under a table to clean, etc. Skirts can get caught in machinery, they are pretty easy to trip over, and to be honest I cannot imagine working in food service in a skirt. It would slow me down!

    The story says she applied in Aug 2010, this is Aug 2012: BK only has a problem with this 2 years later, or she only decided to dress in regligious garb 2 years later? I wonder…
    "McShan also said that when she applied for the job in August, 2010, she made it clear that she would not be wearing black pants to work."

    @mark if they "rethought" what they said, they should have told her something BEFORE she showed up for orientation.

    Anyone who has ever worked in a Burger King knows this is a safety issue. Someone could trip over her skirt, or it could get caught, etc. Come on, this is ridiculous. If you want to wear a skirt to work I am all for it, IF it's appropriate to the environment you work in. Burger King is not one of those environments. Find another job. Suing is not the answer. I hope some judge has enough common sense to tell her this.

    I've known people who've done exercising in skirts as well done manual labor in skirts and skillfully.

    Thinking of it now a skirt comes in so many different lengths and styles that it doesn't necessarily have to be all of the way to the ankle. I mean what if she is a cashier only? Come to think of it she's only 17 and there are labor-laws for that am I right? So she probably wouldn't be there for too long. It would be truly astounding if people who didn't have anything at all nice to say wouldn't say anything at all.

  133. Tamara Wright

    How do we even know if she told them she couldn't wear pants? In the article it states 2010 and we are in 2012. Why did it take so long for her to sue Burger King. I know when my niece went to her interview for BK and they let her read the policy about the dress code. After she read it she signed a paper saying she was informed of the dress policy. From reading the article we really don't know what the real story is.

  134. Catch Twenty-Two

    This is not religious discrimination. There is a dress code policy for a reason SAFTEY. Once the manager or BK allow her to wear a skirt, and her position required cleaning etc, there would be the excuse "I cant im in a skirt" … Would a man have claimed discrimination if he wouldnt be allowed to work in the clothes he had choosen? NO……. There are many religions, and many people that follow the rules of their religion but many choose to "bend" the rules so they can work. Think what would happen if EVERY single christian in the world refused to work on sundays because of church….. is every corporation in the ENTIRE usa suppose to give all their christian employees sunday off? and if they dont, will they have to defend themselves in court when every single christian sues for religious discrimination ?

  135. Anthony Fessette

    After reading the article it sounds more like miscommunication between managers than religious discrimination. She was told the skirt would be ok but no one bothered to tell her manager, obviously it wasn't her manager who told her it would be ok. I think this could have been solved without involving the lawyers and making things worse for both parties.

    There we go again–"if she were Muslim, she would have been allowed to do such and such, but she's Christian and so they're leaning on her"–a headscarf would not have been a problem in this environment; a maxiskirt would have. And don't think Muslim women and girls in hijabs have it easy, either.

  144. Damian Cisneros

    from a business and lawful stand point she wins easily as long as the hiring manager told her it would be okay because burger king is required to provide training on hiring guidelines to understand the policies provided for them, if that manager messed up and said it was okay, then she has every right to sue, if she did make an attempt to acquire any time of confirmation from management about the situation and they ignored her, and it's on record, then she is a definite winner here.

  145. Victoria Killian Gibson

    That's just it a maxiskirt (as you call it) isn't a problem!!! I've worn them for over a decade, Apostolics wear the same thing as Pentecostals!! My girls have never worn pants and they do fine, there is nothing they cannot do. We don't have a problem wearing our skirts or our modest shirts, we are actually quite comfortable and wouldn't trade them for anything.

  149. Mark Andrew Holmes

    @Victoria: Then let her work for you or somebody else for whom her chosen attire is acceptable in their work environment. She needs to understand that just because she's got these religious beliefs doesn't mean she can make everybody play by her rules. Even if she wins this round–and I hope she doesn't–she'll find that out sooner or later. I'm done with this.

    First of all, my initial question would be what makes her think that pants are men's garments? Do pants SAY they are for men or is that some man-made crap that somebody made up to have something to say? If I decided that panties should be worn on my head because my god said I should wear only dainty panties on my head, should I sue Burger King or McDonalds because they want me to wear a hat WHEN I CAN CLEARLY SEE THAT EVERYONE ELSE WORKS SANS PANTIES ON THEIR HEADS? I mean people make up silly rules and ascribe those to god. GOD did NOT tell you that you can't wear pants! Period! The TRUTH is that MEN WORE DRESSES in biblical times! SO if men wore dresses, shouldn't women wear PANTS to be different? DO you SEE the shear stupidity of the whole argument? WHY didn't this girl go work at Walmart? Instead, she has now attached her name to a stupid lawsuit that the Internet will hold on to forever. I don't care how sweet she is – I AM a business owner and I would NEVER hire her! Who knows what she will sue over! When you have a business, you need people to adhere to any uniform requirements you have. If someone doesn't want to – GO WORK SOME PLACE ELSE! Period! I'm sick of people suing over dumb crap! Grow up and go work someplace else!

SO if men wore dresses, shouldn't women wear PANTS to be different? DO you SEE the shear stupidity of the whole argument? WHY didn't this girl go work at Walmart? Instead, she has now attached her name to a stupid lawsuit that the Internet will hold on to forever. I don't care how sweet she is – I AM a business owner and I would NEVER hire her! Who knows what she will sue over! When you have a business, you need people to adhere to any uniform requirements you have. If someone doesn't want to – GO WORK SOME PLACE ELSE! Period! I'm sick of people suing over dumb crap! Grow up and go work someplace else!

    America was founded on religious freedom, that's what made our country great. Too bad small-minded people ruining it for everyone else now. You're "done with this" usually means you cannot come back with a decent reply. 100 years ago, pants would not have been accepted for a woman to wear, it was done only by extremists. Wish we lived with those standards today. I'll pray for you dude.

    It's pretty clean cut all right – she will loose. Her employment contract spells out the terms of employment inclucing dress requirments. BK could sue for breach of contract as well.

    THis is NOT about any religion. It is about an immature teenager, who has failed the subject of respect and the world does NOT revolve around you. This teenager has excelled in learning how to SUE instead of actually work and obey the employers rules and regulations and dress codes t hat are in place for a reason…………….hmmmm…safety comes to mind. You were on probation and the employer can file at will. OPEN YOU OWN COMPANY AND MAKE YOUR OWN RULES! You can have it your way – "THE HIGHWAY".

    ABSOLUTELY ABSURD. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE! You have rights – yep – so does the employer who can choose who works, fits in with the team etc. YOU DID NOT.Thank GOD you did not apply to any of my companies.My rules have been established and enforced – there is absolutely no debate. You can NOT HAVE VISIABLE tatoos, no low cut blouses, articulate command of the English language (and understood), cross training, if you don't have an answer – say so and get it and call customer back, cursive writing, electric typewriter, computers for company business only – we have safety to ensure no personal communication on computer, NO CELL PHONES allowed and guess what – women must wear appropriate business dress suits and men must wear pants (no dresses), normal hair (pinke, blue, purple need not apply) and last but not least, prefer "seasoned" (unfortunately you can't say seniors these days) workers with ethical behavior and "old school" values. If you can't comply – don't apply! I receive about 150 resumes a week – and not one had used abbreviated words (like on text) and well spoken and written. Oh, I don't own a cell – I like to see and talk to REAL PEOPLE – and not push buttons to talk to USA. Our ancestors came to the USA for freedom and work and learned the language etc. of Americans and worked hard – were greatful – and tried to make it easier for their children. They are turning in their graves at your ignorance. You should be thankful for a job. I would never hire you – SUE ME. If I owned a fast food due to grease splatter etc., I would require pants FYI. SHAME ON YOU AND YOUR PARENTS WHO SUPPORT YOU – they should be teaching you life isn't fair all the time and bad things happen to good people and respect etc. This generations is going to hell…………………..

    How on earth does that constitute a hazard? Nobody is saying she wants to wear a flowing Victorian style dress. She wants to wear a simple, black skirt instead of pants. Why is everyone so bent on making sure anyone with conservative beliefs are set aside and ostracized for their beliefs. It's purely wrong. I don't believe Burger King or the manager had any ill-feeling toward this person just because she preferred to wear a skirt or even because she was Christian. It's the people that comment saying that she's a hazard because she wants to wear a skirt that drive me up a wall!

    Just wondering out loud here…so you are saying that black pants are for men and men only? That is ridiculous. Sure I understand the biblical passage in Deuteronomy, women should not wear mens clothing and likewise. Does that really pertain to pants? Sounds like reaching to me.
    Anyway, the issue here is that she was told she would be allowed to wear a long black skirt in place of black pants during the interview. All of a sudden she shows up to the orientation and they now say she can't? That is messed up and a waste of time, however that doesn't give someone the excuse to pull out the religion card and sue a company because you don't agree with their rules. If you don't like it, tough luck go somewhere else.

    To the people who say she has to abide by BK's policy: She asked BEFORE she got hired if she could wear a skirt due to her religious beliefs and was told YES. AFTER she showed up they told her she couldn't. Sounds like BK is in the wrong here. If they had told her no in the beginning then the young lady would probably not be suing them. IMO, this is definitely religious discrimination.

    tamara "work" work as in Burger King and "Work" as in a man of god speaking to his congregation are completely different. the Pastor is doing gods job in teaching the bible. Not flipping burgers and demanding special treatment. IF they allow her to work in her skirt due to her religion, what would bk do when an female applicant is covered head to toe in her clothing that her religion requires her to wear ? If she was a cashier only it would make it difficult for a hard of hearing customer to hear the cashier speaking through all the layers of cloth…

    HAHA Just a typo (like you've never done it) Say all you want (that is your privilege) as is mine to worship how I so choose. It's apparent that some folks don't know a thing about federal law. (that businesses must abide by) A business cannot discriminate racially, nor can it discriminate religiously. Our country was founded on religious freedom and the right to worship God as we so choose. Our forefathers would roll over in their graves to read some of the anti-God, anti-Christian comments. Anyway, keep on commenting as you so choose, because I work every-day for God and I have better things to do than debate what is already settled in Heaven. I have no idea who the young lady is, but my hat is off to her and God is on her side. Oh, and the snake comment…..Jesus, nor His disciples were snake handlers and real pentecostals arent either. (you watch too much TV)

    LOL! Ah, the ignorant rantings of a "genius." You really should try reading a book sometime. And maybe the law, too.

    In point of fact, employers are required BY FEDERAL LAW to make "reasonable accommodations" for an employee's religion. Period.

    Here, let me help since you're clearly too dense to be able to do a little research. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 requires AN EMPLOYER to "demonstrate that he is unable to reasonably accommodate an employee’s or prospective employee’s religious observance or practice without undue hardship on the conduct of the employer’s business."

    This woman's religion requires her to wear dresses, not pants. A reasonable accommodation could have been made, especially considering that the pants requirement is not a safety requirement nor would it have placed an undue hardship on the business.

    Burger King did not make the reasonable accommodation despite the fact that the accommodation would, in absolutely no way, create an "undue hardship" on the business. Burger King is going to lose this case and lose it BIG TIME.

    If you actually think Burger King is going to win this case, you are without a doubt the stupidest person I've ever met. Ever.

    Any restaurants who hires someone to work in a long skirt is in danger of having an accident!!! Just imagine why they wear pants in restarants, and a long skirt is plain stupid in a restaurant!!! go work for your church!!!!!

    "she made it clear that she would not be wearing black pants to work"…Say whaaaa? Who the f*** tells an employer what their uniform will be? I'll call bulls***…Look for her "demands" on the the application…

  248. Tamara Wright

    I disagree with your analogy of work being different…Some Pastors get a salary…which means that being a Pastor is an occupation therefore preaching on a Sunday is doing his job which the salary is paying for…It doesn't matter where you work. A job is a job. My Pastor does not get any money from the church she has a full-time job which pays her. If her job (the one that pays her bills) asks her to work on Sunday she has to go because its her job.

    I respect your choice to your religion. However, for you to try and force your beliefs on to others, then you are entirely wrong. You are screaming "foul" but, it is a choice you have made. You have to accept that others are entitled to have choices as well. I have been in manager in food service. I would not allow any female to work in a skirt/dress for safety reasons. Along with the fact that many times you have to bend down to get something, and I would not want to put any female into a position to expose herself in carrying out her duties of the job. If this girl wants to work, even though the Bible states that it is the males role of work and support, then she needs to accept that some employers will not accomodate her request to dress her own way, using her religious beliefs as support for her actions.

    She has every right to seek employment, but she should be ready to accept the terms and limits of the position she is applying. To support this case would bring on a rush of legal actions because some religions believe that Saturday is holy, therefore they will be suing if scheduled on their "holy" day. Or they could refuse to work on Sunday. To agree with this, is telling every employer they have to operate their business around the beliefs of every person who walks in the door of their business. This would not only be impossible, it would bring free enterprise to a very rapid demise.

    Practice your religion, but don't force others to follow your beliefs.

    why should any employer allow someone's "belief" to dictate their policies? she has a belief that god wants her to dress a certain way. so what? its ludicrous and no one should have to take it seriously. ditto for head scarves, and yarmulkes, and any religious clothing. the creator of the universe really cares what you wear to work? give me a break.

    So, for all the "rocket scientists" criticizing the young lady in the article and clearly talking out of your arses, you might want to spend a little time with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which forbids religious discrimination and requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for an employee's religion.

    It's not like the girl said, "I want to work at Burger King, but my religion forbids me from cooking beef, frying potatoes, or talking to strangers. Also, I refuse to work on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays. Now pay me."

    She merely wanted the reasonable accommodation of a skirt, not pants. This wouldn't have inconvenienced this company in the least nor would it have posed a safety or a health hazard.

    Now, you may not like the law, but that's not the point. The point is, THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964 IS THE LAW of the land and has been for almost 50 years. Burger King failed to follow the law. They are going to lose BIG TIME.

    I am just really stunned at the absolute ignorance that permeates our society. Instant access to research via the Internet, but the most willfully dumb people on the planet refuse to use it AND revel in their own ignorance, sure of that they're right when, clearly, they're as wrong as the millennium is long.

    So, for all the "rocket scientists" criticizing the young lady in the article and clearly talking out of your arses, you might want to spend a little time with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which forbids religious discrimination and requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for an employee's religion.

    It's not like the girl said, "I want to work at Burger King, but my religion forbids me from cooking beef, frying potatoes, or talking to strangers. Also, I refuse to work on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays. Now pay me."

    She merely wanted the reasonable accommodation of a skirt, not pants. This wouldn't have inconvenienced this company in the least nor would it have posed a safety or a health hazard.

    If she were a Muslim and was suing for the same reason, or a scarf on her head or any other Muslim nonsense, she would get a before-court settlement from BK because they know they would lose. Being a Caucasion and Christian, she will probably lose. Reverse discrimination.

  302. Clint Tito Jackson

    In all honesty, all of you have it right on when you say 'she needs to work with the standards of this established franchise.' (or anything to this extent). At the same time though, I think the real case comes down to them saying that wearing a skirt would not be a problem and then reversing their decision. Otherwise, she would have no proper ground to sue them, had they laid down any reasons for their dress code instead of giving her an initial 'go ahead.'

  303. Sue Haskins

    Such ridiculousness. If she addressed this issue with the person who hired her, she should have gotten it in writing. If you know the dress code and you show up in violation, the company has the right to fire you. Then you need to find another job that allows you to wear a skirt. You don't sue a company and claim religious persecution. Personally, I am fed up with Christian fundamentalists trying to run the U.S. Go to work for a "Christian"-based company like Chik-Fil-A.

  304. Greg Zimmerman

    it's not religious discrimination, it's a contract and the business owns you. it's not a work environment where kids are king but where the boss and customers are king…

  305. Alfred Ortiz

    Its a job….They are paying you to do a job. If they have a uniorm I'm sure she knew that from the start of the job. Religion should play no part of it. If it offends you get another job. I have my own business and what I say goes… If they don't like it look for another job.

  306. Sue Haskins

    Mr. Pickard: It is a work rule. Your denomination doesn't get to decide work rules for companies. Now, if they purposely were trying to discriminate against your Penecostal faith, that would be different.

  307. Jerren Young

    You are right John, this is probably a franchisee; and is not representative of BK. I stand corrected. Montell, to them it is as big of a deal as a Jew wearing a Yamika, or a Seikh wearing a turban. I dont agree with any of them, but I do respect their faith the way I would want them to respect mine.

  308. Daniel Martinez

    she is not married Jesus….did you not read, a 17 yr old in high school..the world should not judge anyone on their beliefs, you give up one belief, then you are apt to give up others..

    If you own the company, you should be allowed to fire anyone for any reason. Its not the governments money its Burger Kings money and if they want their employees to wear Santa hats or hats made of pork that's their business not the governments. If you don't like it, don't work there and don't eat there. Problem fixed lets move onto out national debt.

    If it is against her religion to wear pants, then it is against her religion to work at Burger King, where there is a pre-established dress code. (They didn't change their uniform policy just to keep her from working there, so it isn't discrimination!) As a business owner, it is MY right to decide what my employees will wear – it is your right ONLY to decide if you will work for me!

BUT I KNOW THAT Burger King handed her a manual that told her what the proper costume was. and she agreed to that policy to get the job. so it's not discrimination if she knew before hand that it would be required. if you have a religious belief that might cause a problem with your job don't you think you might want to FUCKING Mention this before you get the JOB. OH NOOOOO because then you wont get the job FOR A LEGITIMATE REASON. SO instead you agree to everything then claim discrimination. I call shenanigans. your a cheat and a liar and a sue happy moron looking for a buck.

    In Biblical times men never wore divided garments. Why aren't you following the bible?

  371. Michael Henry

    If wardrobe is an issue, she should have gone somewhere else for employment. She can't sue for hardship, she was 17. Get over yourself. They were pants because anything else will cause a fire, trip, grease or getting caught hazard. She has no written agreement from Burger King allowing the switch. This case is open and shut.

    i think your problem is having someone much different than what you are used to being around with–people with no beliefs or standards…well she had a standard and stuck with it..

  374. Kirsten J Walstedt

    Since anything you can find to support one position in a bible can be countered with a passage that supports exactly the opposite, BK should find a biblical passage that contradicts this. In any case, pants do not constitute a religion. I can make up any religion that has any precepts and then I can use it to get jobs I am not willing to follow the requirements of. Maybe I'll get working on that.

  375. Ronnie Smith

    If you are hired by a company yuo automaticallyagree to follow their rules and dress codes/ period. The best way to stop this kind of lawsuits in the states is to give the lawyer about 12 months first time for a fibious lawsuit, and force him to pay for the court costs. the girl should share the penality and costs. christian or not she is after money not religion. and if she really wanted to sue she should go after her parents, and the chruch for forcing her to have such outdated and silly beleifs.

  376. Chris Wallis

    Since we're using the bible to justify things,

    1 Corinthians 6:7 ESV.

    As long as they said on the 1st day that the uniform must be worn BURGER KING is fine.They could site it is a safety concern. I work in a packaging plant – no shorts, no skirts, long pants only. FDA would back up bk.But if someone did say it would not be a problem then she has a case. It is all about what they said to her.

  378. Chena Talkington

    Hmmmm… Christians can't wear pants, but they can manipulate the legal system for their own financial gain… Hmmmm… Also sounds like REVERSE discrimination – Radical Christians discriminating against the secular world's right to require uniforms in the work place!

    Leviticus 11:9 – 11:12 says that shellfish are an "abomination" and thou shalt not eat their flesh. So I think I will apply for a job at Red Lobster and refuse to have anything to do with shellfish. Maybe as a cook I will cook steak, but refuse to handle lobster or shrimp. Or as a waitress I will not serve customers who order lobster and shrimp, but if they order steak I will serve that. If they try to fire me I will cite Leviticus and sue them for religious discrimination.

    Does your church pay your living costs? If so….. then follow their regulations… If Burger KIng pays your salary then give them what they are paying for. You accepted the job. Why create a problem? Sounds like you will be unemployed the rest of your life if you cannot learn to follow rules and fight over every regulation. Pants are not male or female…. the people who wear them are… Your pants belong to a female…. not to a male…

    what a frivolous lawsuit. this has nothing to do with religious discrimination, this is about dressing appropriately for the job….. and she claims she is forbidden to wear men's clothing– honey pants have not been considered exclusively a man´s garment since like 1950…. get with the times! or, at least don´t expect the rest of the world to live in the past with you….

  428. Celeste 'Sieber' Sexton

    I hate to say it but she has a legitimate case because she stated her religion in the interview and according to EOE and labor laws, they are required to accommodate as long as it isn't outrageous. When I worked for Arby's I almost didn't hire someone simply because she told me she couldn't wear pants and since the uniform required black pants, I didn't think I could hire her for safety reasons. There was no other reason not to hire her but when my store manager asked me about it I told her that I wasn't going to because I thought it would be considered a safety concern so she checked with our district manager who informed her that if we didn't hire her based solely on that one thing then it would be considered religious discrimmination.I hadn't know that before that incident.

  429. Mark Collins

    I used to do recruiting for a large department/grocery chain. Our policy was, as I'm sure it still is, to make accommodation wherever we could. One time, we had a young woman who wanted to work for us who wanted to wear long robes for religious reasons. Our response: no. The reason: we had real concerns that the attire she needed to wear would actually pose a safety hazard for the particular job she was applying for. We could have accommodated her elsewhere in the store, but she wasn't yet 18, so couldn't run a cash register for us (because of the sale of alcohol) or other machinery.

    We explained the situation to her, and that we respected her stance, but that we had concerns about her safety. She was good with that. About that same time, she ended up changing which parent she was living with, changed religions, and decided that she was OK with slacks. She did come to work for us, but lasted only a few days, leaving for reasons of a different nature.

    Having worked at McDonald's a time or two, I can tell you that I'd be concerned about workers working in long, flowing dresses there or in similar jobs. The reason wouldn't be religious, however. It would be because of very real safety concerns.

  430. William Mccotter

    I think she and her lawyer are trying to get some easy money she knew they had uniform I hope the judge put both of hem in jail for stealing.

  432. Jason Hock

    I don't think it matters if it is "religious" discrimination or not. If they have a set dress code conduct and dresses are not allowed for anyone why should this individual be exempt. I understand that she may have been misinformed during her interview but that isn't a legally binding contract. Most companies make you sign or acknowledge in writing what the dress code is, I would be very interested to know if she had signed anything.

    When I first read the title, honestly, I felt the teen was at fault. But, after reading, BOTH parties are at fault. Wearing skirts in a place like burger king could inhibit a person's ability to work. It's also a big safety issue. BUT BK should never have said that her wearing a skirt "wouldn't be a problem".

  435. Darrin Silverman

    Another wasted lawsuit. Where are the damages. What is she going to claim mental anguish for being let go after 1 hour. The lawyer will get a bunch of religious zealots on the jury and they will award her some crazy figure like a million bucks because one time Burger King put Mayo on their Whopper so they have a deep hatred of Burger King and are waiting for the moment to stick to them.

  436. Stephen Scott Jividen Sr.

    In these times who knows. To go to court over this doesn't make sense to me. She knew before what the uniform was before she applied. Did she bring it up before showing up not in uniform or was it planned this way? If a person can purchase a hot cup of coffee not use a cup holder then sue because she got burnt who knows this women could get a big chunck of money.

  437. Libby-John Cormier

    touche! having a witness is key, unless you're in california, i've seen workers win easier cases over employeers for ridiculous sums out here, if its new mexico, then it wouldn't matter in the least, because they are a true to word at will state and wrongful termination, discrimination, and similar cases are nearly impossible to win out there…it's always amazing how the law is exercised so different between different states

  439. Chris Wallis

  442. Matthew Scott Chavers

    I am glad she is! Being Pentecostal myself, they should have never hired her knowing what she believed when she advised before hired. To many people discriminate over religion such as the Chickfila ordeal. I am proud of this young lady for standing up for what she believes. I think they could let it go and just move on but she has a right I guess. If she was of a different race and something happen it would be all over the news or if she was homosexual etc. but when it comes to religion people want to ridicule and bash it. We have people beating and killing people in the world, human trafficking, drugs etc. but the religious issues everyone talks about.

  443. Stephen Haupt

    Where does it say pants are mens clothing? Any religion that puts restrictions on people like these is nothing more than a cult not a religion.

  444. Leigh Turland

    As a manager, as long as it is the proper color, suitable attire, and doesn't pose a safety issue, I have zero fucks to give if an employee chooses to wear a skirt instead of pants. The manager in this case was being an inflexible dick.

  445. Ian Wildermuth

    It is not religious discrimination. This is just a story about an idiot, and miscommunication. There is no reason why she couldn't have left her orientation, and or talk to the manager who said it was ok. Unless the one running the orientation WAS the manager, then we go with the idiot theory. SUE THE HELL OUT OF THEM!

  446. Yolanda Green

    So she been wearing pants all this time…now all of a sudden she wanna wear a skirt. Girl please! No restaurant allows their employees to wear skirts. She wont be getting a dime.

  447. Brandon Roby

    No i think she said she had to wear a skirt from the get go, then she showed up to orientation, and the manager sent her home because of the skirt…scav, i can't see a person who has been wearing skirts for 17 years getting clumsy and all of the sudden tripping over their skirt…

  448. Dillon Glaser

    Burger King would have a point IF they didn't say beforehand that she could wear the dress. Because they said that, they can't just change their mind and fire her. Whether it's religious discrimination, I don't think I can accurately judge, but it is clear that McShan is really the not at fault, and I hope the judge/arbitrator/mediator/BK's lawyers see things that way, too.

I wish this young lady a whopper of a victory…arr arr….

  472. Chris McGatha

    Now, is the person who hired her and the one doing the orientation the same? Or is it the one hiring her said ok and the one doing orientation saying no? Let's say it's the same person, did she clearly state that the reason for the skirt instead of pants was for religious purposes? Or did she just ask if it was ok to wear the skirt instead? Just a few things to think about that aren't quite clear here.
    Either way, you know that any business like this has a policy of pants, why tempt it? Why not try to just get another job where no one has any issue of pants/skirt? I do see the point though, I worked at Wendy's when I was 16 and one of my managers wore a skirt with no issues from higher, and her wearing it was because she wanted to, nothing religious. So I don't see any reason for BK to be so bossy and picky over it. It's a fast food place for teenagers, not a professional multi-billion dollar corporation.

    Well, It claims that Burger King OKed her wearing a skirt and then reneged so she's not in the wrong. Plus I strongly admire and respect a woman that adheres to wearing only feminine clothing.

  561. Jeff Murphy

    Employers have a right to present a dress code..that is clearly explained in the hiring process. I don't know of any fast food place that allows dresses. If you want to work for any company you follow their rules. Don't like them, don't workt there..I hope she loses this case.

  562. Jamie Strom Thompson

    I am Christian Pentecostal and got a job when I was 16 at McDonald's. They actually ordered skirts as part of the uniform they provided for me. Apparently, it really isn't a hazard for an employee to wear a skirt in a restaurant environment. As far as the hatemongers out there who are saying the belief of skirts is old fashioned, what icons are shown on men's and women's restroom doors? A man wearing pants and a woman wearing a dress.

  563. Monroe White III

    Then go work for the church, or a place that allows long skirts. This is just like people who move next door to a nudist colony, knowing it's there, and then complain about all the nudity. This isn't religious discrimination, it's religious extortion. Doesn't the Bible say you shouldn't sue anyone? Typical religious nut, of which Christians are the worst kind, selectively choosing which parts of the Bible's moral codes they'll adhere to, while ignoring the others. HYPOCRITES!

  564. Corey Hall

    well, now that ive actually read the article, it seems to me that one of two things is going on here, either 1: the person interviewing her agreed to something that wasn't within their authority to agree to or 2: it isn't exactly as clear cut as this girl's defense attorney purports it to be, i.e. it didn't exactly happen the way this girl says it happened.

  565. Billy Day

    Almost every business has a dress code….. If you can't meet it, DON'T F'ING WORK THERE!

    If you showed up for an interview and nothing was said or they didn't give you specific instructions or a paper stating the dress code and all other aspects of the job then no matter who or what religion you are that is there problem.

    This is not religious discrimination this is stupidity for thinking you can hire monkeys to give out bananas. The monkey is always looking for a free ride. Go work somewhere else where you can wear your stupid black skirt. No exceptions. Now that is equality…no special treatment. I can see other women complain that they are being discriminated in favor of religious. what happen to do as your told or your fired! Damn regulations!

    This is the definition of frivolous lawsuit, this was a simple misunderstanding but leave it to some stupid bitch to stary crying about religious persecution. I hope the judge jails her for being a dumbass and wasting the courts time and taxpayers money. By the way if she's too stupid to even get the orientation part at Burger King right without a lawsuit good luck getting a real job.

  571. Lori Woodman Storer

    Just do the job you are being hired to do, and follow the procedures as required… Does this company not have a compliance booklet that new hires should read, and sign before being hired? Bogus lawsuit. She should keep her religious beliefs in her heart and soul, and just do the job asked of you, and if it means part of your pay requires having to wear a uniform, that may be manly, suck it up, do the job, and Act Like an AMERICAN! So over these frivolous lawsuits because she couldn't wear a skirt,,, get over it…..

  572. Jason Hammertime Schellhamer

    She was fired from her job? She didn't even work a day. She showed up to orientation then let go. So it shouldn't matter.

Woo, wee, just as crazy as I can be, maybe can hit the lottery and try to hang with Prince Harry, will not have his looks or charisma but with the moola maybe the girls with let me hang saying boola, boola, this is gooda, gooda.

    Enough already with these lawsuits! What happened to the days when you went to work, did your job and if you got fired you went home, cried and got another job? Does this woman have anything in WRITING or is it, "he said", "she said". Anything to try for the easy buck! I'm sick of it.

  575. Ray Taylor Tetreault

    I hope she sues the PANTS off them! We need more people firm in their beliefs. She's not asking for them to allow her to be a nudist. Go Ashanti! She was upfront with them before starting… they weren't!

    It is discrimination when its her religion. Whats the difference between an idiot wearing his pants below his knees, shirt half mile long, hat turned sideways and cursing in the restuarant?i see it all the time. At least she keeps herself presentable and respectful.

    Texas is a right to work state. You can be fired for any reason. They also don't have to give you breaks and can work you as many hours they want in a row. Sounds bad, but then again no one is making you work there.

  583. Carol Johnson

    Religious discrimination involves treating a person (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because of his or her religious beliefs. The law protects not only people who belong to traditional, organized religions, such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism, but also others who have sincerely held religious, ethical or moral beliefs.

  584. Darla Elliott-vanbenschoten

    Wearing a long dress is not a safety hazard anymore than anything else is-you have to move differently and think ahead a bit, I wear a long dress everyday, I paint and climb ladders. My day job is office where no question it is fine.When I worked at Taco Bell there was a woman who wore a long skirt and head dress, it was a non-issue back then. I agree she has a right to follow her personal religious compass, but I also agree a company which has uniforms that they consider part of their image has a duty to ensure the employees they hire are wearing what they deem appropriate-and they do tell you this up front. I think the hiring manager made a mistake in communicating this would be ok, or she misunderstood-I do not think Burger King discriminated though-they expected compliance to their rules during certain set hours and she cannot comply in this case without comprimising her own beliefs. She WAS hired though and had told them of her beliefs, many states are 'at will' and you can be fired for any reason-in this case it appears their rules were not followed. I do not believe it was religious discrimination.

  585. Robert Jackson

    Read that too. You are right. Had people in retail that wore long skirt bcause of there relegion. Lot of places have dress codes and the should know that before they go work at a fast food place good comment

    FFS. Stupidity at its finest. Time to put these frivolous lawsuits to rest. Go to court and meet her head on. Her word, against the manager's who has to adhere to corporate standards. Counter sue her arse for libel. If she wins, fine, if she loses, she gets branded for libel. Using religion as a shield to sue. Get a real job instead if using loopholes and hiding behind your religion. You really think your god is proud of your conniving actions? Hire a private investigator and have this teenager followed and see if at any time in her daily routine she deviates from her "attire"……..so sick of these idiotic lawsuits and hiding behind their freaking religion…….newsflash, God, if there is one, would not give a rat's arse about what your wear…….he/she has more important things to worry about than making sure you wear the right fashion each freaking minute of your life………MORON.

    Yes it is descrimination, I don't wear pants either, only skirts, but not for religious reasons. I would also sue if I was told I could not wear a skirt and had to wear pants.

  589. Barbara Reynolds

    As someone who has worked in fast food and kitchens for many years a dress or skirt is NOT a good idea. There is more material in a skirt that can get caught in machinery and cause serious injury. This girl went to her first day knowing the rules. If you need accommodation you are to get it in writing at the time of hiring not wait until your first day then cry foul.

    It's 2012…pants don't represent men's clothes. To prove my point just google women's pant sizes. The world has adjusted since some of these religious edicts were written. We even got flying chariots and magic picture boxes. I've even heard that little demons are no longer the cause of illnesses.

  602. Jeremiah Snyder

    This is not a case of religious discrimination. The reason why restaurants with deep fryers make employees wear pants is so that if scalding hot fry oil spills on you, your pants can be ripped off leaving your skin behind. If you wear a skirt and hot fry oil spills on you, there is nothing to take off but your skin. Religious freedom only goes so far. If she doesn't want to wear pants because it is against her religious beliefs, then she should find a job somewhere where there is no risk of having your skin burned off by boiling oil. Furthermore, it is people like this that will sue the restaurant after they have spilled hot oil all over themselves.

  603. Michael McKee

    I disagree, I think she had every right to wear the skirt to adhear to her values and BK agreed to this prior to the hiring of her. If they could not accommodate they needed to tell her in the first place. If a Muslim was hired no doubt they would accommodate them and they should. It is not radical christianity it is adhering to her faith.

  604. Laire Serrano

    I truly admire this girl. It takes balls to stand up for what you believe when there are a bunch of judgmental people critisiing something as simple as wanting to wear a skirt because it is simply the way you were taught. As a 16 year old girl I wish I could speak up like this, not to earn money or be a 'cry baby' but to prove that not everyone is the same and sometimes people believe different things. As the saying goes "stand for something or you'll fall for anything."

    not just a religious discrimination but a what you are allowed to wear discrimination. she was told she could wear long black skirts and then at orientation sent away… as long as her clothes in no way hampered her ability to cook/serve/clean tables/clean floors then she should be allowed to wear whatever they told her she could wear.

    I'm a conservative. This story points up troubling implications between individual religious liberty and the right of a business to set its own standards. I think that a clear distinction needs to be drawn by "INDIVIDUAL" business owners and "CORPORATIONS", which are non-human entities constructed according to government guidelines. I think corporations should be regulated according to EEOC guidelines, since they are by definition a legal construct. Corporations shouldn't be collectively covered by the Bill of Rights as a person, even though the SCOTUS stupidly ruled that they are people. Individual business owners should be covered by the Bill of Rights, and have the right to tell employees what to wear in their establishment. On the flip side, I also feel an individual business owner can be more flexible than some faceless corporation, since he has a face to face relationship with the employee.

    well…honestly, as businesses are legally required to be non-discriminant as far as their HIRING practices go since the Civil Rights Act of 1964… employees still have to follow any and all uniform requirements of their employer… even if it violates their religion. muslim women are not supposed to show their face to anyone but their husband, but there's 100 different things they are forced to do so, like jobs, to take ID photos, going through airport security, into stores/banks, etc…

    if you don't like the uniform, don't work there… she's going to have to deal with this problem at almost ANY company she'll ever work at…

    what if your religion required that you never wear clothing of any kind? or at the very least just a loin cloth or bikini. going to sue every business in the country? ya know, I think ALL companies shouldn't employ ANYONE who is Religious, because they are clearly insane and borderline schizophrenic for believing such poppycock. that could possibly endanger customers, other employees AND themselves believing that a "MAGICAL, INVISIBLE MAN IN THE SKY" will save you from harm, injury and misfortune(s) if you telepathically ask him too! might be taking unnecessary risks with false belief that you'll be saved from shit if it goes wrong!

    if you don't like the uniform, don't work there… she's going to have to deal with this problem at almost ANY company she'll ever work at…

    what if your religion required that you never wear clothing of any kind? or at the very least just a loin cloth or bikini. going to sue every business in the country? ya know, I think ALL companies shouldn't employ ANYONE who is Religious, because they are clearly insane and borderline schizophrenic for believing such poppycock. that could possibly endanger customers, other employees AND themselves believing that a "MAGICAL, INVISIBLE MAN IN THE SKY" will save you from harm, injury and misfortune(s) if you telepathically ask him too! might be taking unnecessary risks with false belief that you'll be saved from shit if it goes wrong!

    The company should have the right to enforce its own dress code. No company should have to change its standards in order to conform to a religious authority. (I can't believe that I even have to make this argument in 2012). Just as a person has a right to refuse to work for a company that does not conform to his or her beliefs. As for the possible mistake during the hiring process, that argument holds no water. If during an interview I am told that I will have a certain shift, but then find out that that shift is actually not available during my orientation, I am out of luck. I either take a different shift or find other work. Silly lawsuit. It should be thrown out.

    She can't wear a long skirt in a fast food environment! That's ridiculous. The floors are wet and greasy and it's just too chaotic. I have worked fast food. You can't do it. And so what they said she could wear it at first? They made a mistake, but they corrected it. She has no claim.

I'm glad she had the guts to sue. Maybe that will give the overzealous, pompous jerk that dismissed her a wake up call. Even though it's a low-on-the-totem-pole job, the employees still deserve to be treated with common sense and decency.

    She is wrong for trying to get special treatment because of her religion. BK messed up when they said it would be okay and then changed their mind, but they have a uniform policy and an employee can either comply with the dress code or seek other employment. It is wrong to expect a business to make special exceptions for an individuals personal beliefs.

    Perhaps if you want to work, but can't for religious purposes, just ask your cult…I mean religion for money to support you. If you can't follow the dress code of a company when hired…then don't apply. Why do people always need to push their religion on others? I am a Southern Baptist, but I don't need to dunk all of my co-workers under water and baptize them before I can go to work. It's called having common sense. I think Burger King should counter sue, for not being able to exercise their religious freedom.

    Corporations do not care about anyone's religion, a corporation's sole function is to make as much money as possible. Burger King is a fast food corporation that makes as much money as possible by being as standardized as possible. Same food, same uniforms, same look to the physical buildings, etc. A corporation has no legal function to change for the employee, the employee serves the corporate good or is replaced.

    I, personally, don't believe in religion, period. BUT…that notwithstanding, there is such a thing as fairness and justice–and corporations have a long history of lying, cheating and feeling entitled screw people over with no sense of conscience or accountability for their actions. The girl communicated IN ADVANCE that she would need to wear a dress instead of trousers. Well, a deal is a deal. And, of course, the corporation always feels that their rules only apply when it works to their advantage. The manager is responsible for this mess–the girl still wore black, for god's sake. I wish there was a law imposing the death penalty for corporate hypocrisy and stupidity. The girl is 100% in the right–I hope her attorney rapes Burger King's bank account for all it's worth.

    It seems like pretty much everyone is missing the point here. The company, during the hiring process told the young lady that what she planned to wear was fine. Now when she shows up wearing what they told her that she could wear, they reneged. That's the argument here. All other issues brought up are moot issues. I don't feel that religion has anything to do with it. However real the safety issue are, they don't matter when the hiring person told her that this shouldn't be an issue. I've worked at a Burger King over thirty years ago and if someone wanted to wear a skirt, I couldn't possibly see any safety issues that could have come up. I'd say let the kid work.

    again another attempt to put mans rules upon religion. misquoting scripture completely. mis-informed religious group. when the scripture was written about women and men's clothing they both wore robes ( dress like robes) they didn't have pants yet. so women were not to wear the man's robe but rather the womans robe that also had an attached head cover. these pentecostal by name only also deny women the right to cut thier hair denying the following verse when adressed in scripture " but if any man seem to be contentious. neither we nor the church of God have any such custom." why don't they ever preach this verse? because it gives freedom instead of bondage….

    I agree that making a lot of man made rules and regulations take away the message of the gospel itself and actually covers it up or hides it. It is dangerous. I do believe though in religious freedom and if the woman feels that she should wear a dress rather than pants she should be allowed to do so. Many religions like the Amish have that rule. I disagree with their interpretation of scripture on it though. I think the Lord was trying to keep the distinction of sexes clear and forbid a man trying to pass himself off as a woman and a woman trying to appear like a man perhaps to avoid confusion. I did know a young girl who refused to wear pants but she did a lot of other things that were worse. She refused to go to movies also but would rent tapes and watch one movie after another at home. If our trust is not in Christ alone, we can become very unstable and not be sure of our salvation.

    Most establishments in the food business have a specific uniform…I believe if you apply for a position that requires a certain dress code, then you adhere to it – or look for employment elsewhere… you wouldn't sue a police dept or the military because they won't let you wear a skirt (or would she?)… this is a frivolous lawsuit in my opinion – one of many that tear at the seams of the System. Does she have the right to practice her religion? – of course… but Burger King also has the right to run their business how they wish and set forth their own expectations for an employee.

I have long hair and a beard and some places won't hire me because of that (i'm not willing to cut my hair and shave for a job) so I simply look for work where my hair and beard aren't an issue. should I tell them I'll cut n shave so I can sue when they let me go? could I say I have the beard and hair for my religious beliefs? get a job where a skirt isn't a problem and drop the stupid law suit that is just clogging our court system.

    I see it all the time. There is freedom of religion & a person should be able to practice their beliefs.As far as the skirt thing it can be a little more understood over religious reason when they are wearing ankle length that also matches the uniform pants. However others I've seen & worked with years ago wore "SKIRTS" for religious reasons but when they are tight or way above the knee bend over everyone sees way up that thing!!!

    This is a touchy subject, but I agree with you there. But I have to add something in. I was a manager at BK for many, many, way too many years. We did have a woman who came in who only wore skirts because of her religion. We were able to order her skirts through our catalog that were parts of the uniform and it worked out just fine. Now, I want to know, how the hell are you supposed to run in a skirt? How are you supposed to do almost anything that a cop does, in a skirt?!?!?!?!?!? Working at a resteraunt is one thing, but a cop?!?!? Really?!?!?!?

    Meghan, what do you think the problem was here? Is it based on the franchise owner itself – or is it up to the store manager? Sounds doable – and could be a non issue if they would just bust out the BK catalog and order her a damn skirt!

    To us, she was the daughter of an employee who had been with us for years. We made exceptions. The skirt wasn't the issue. The issue we had was that she had to take a break at a certain time every day in order to pray. So that meant we were one man down every day at that time. You cant bring in a person just to cover that time frame. We still brought her on board and she was a wonderful cashier. She was a wonderful person in general. The other thing we had to worry about was our "language" around her. Any one who has ever worked fast food knows, you talk very dirty about a lot of very dirty things. We would offend her quite a bit. She would mostly stay up to the front so she wouldnt hear us, but it was hard to refrain from being ourselves around her. Maybe this company looked at all of those asspects and made thier judgement that way. I dont think it was based only on the skirt. Maybe they tried to order the skirt and they did have it in stock. Maybe it just wasnt worth thier time and energy when they have a kid right next to her willing to work in the pants they have in the back room and he has the same experince.

  711. John Smith

    Religious sects/cults have all manner of rules that are "out there" relative to mainstream culture. If someone's religion says: "you must always wear a 3 foot tall cone hat and only wear turquoise clothing" but the company states that a job duty is to: "wear our black and maroon uniform that includes a beret," it is up to the individual to comply or acknowledge they cannot do the job.

    In this case, we have the potential of a young girl who'd possibly gotten her hopes up on the word of a BK official after possible (maybe even probable?) previous disappointments regarding job opportunities. If she was lied to by someone with a say in the company, she deserves some RUDIMENTARY compensation based on the lie and the negative emotions it caused her OR to be given special uniform treatment. If BK does give her special treatment regarding her uniform, their acquiescence will likely open up future cans of worms from other religious scenarios.

    Every job has requirements as long as they hired her and agreed then she has the right to wear it. She didn't get hired and pop the skirt surprise on them.

    Before I get hired they always go to the hire authority to be sure skirts are not & WILL not be a problem…Most the time they say it has to be somewhat tight not too flowly for safety & some say it has to be a pencil skirt just below knee & its fine…IF not then they say no you have to meet guidelines and wear pants….and then we both have an understanding. But if they said yes then I show up to work and they fire me & wasted all my good time & energy better believe they owe you something for your time & efforts that are now wasted & u back in the search again -WORD OF ADVISE JUST SAY NO BK.Problem solved Now live pay the girl and LEARN!

    It's always about the money. If something does not go your way, Sue them. It states in the handbook what they need to wear for work, it it says nothing about skirts. Someone probably told her yes, but that person was not in charge of What to wear and what cannot be worn. I agree with Burger King. Wearing a dress is a hazard. The person that is doing the hiring process is there for only that, to hire people. It is up to read their Dress Code and abide by it. What make her so special for anyone else. If Burger King Gave in to have her wear a Dress, then everyone else will have an explanation about it also and not wear the clothes. This is ridiculous what she is trying to do!

    Lucius Austin wrong! 1st of all that is part of her religion u cannot tell a Muslim not to wear a turbine or head wrap into work… those pants have nothing to do with her work performance & duh its a such thing as wonens clothes but she is not sayin it like that her religion forbids her from wearing clothes that's looked at as mend attire meaning PANTS!!! She has a legitimate reason fa the lawsuit & she will most definitely get justice!

    well, if she were muslim she'd be allowed to wear a headscarf while working, that's not part of the uniform…so, yes, I think they were discriminating…it's only a skirt.

    & i've worked in fast food its not a requirement to wear pants also she told them before hand & got it approved! She wore the skirt to fill out an application & she wore the skirt to orientation she wasn't even on the floor to be technical!! But they will surely lose because all jobs have a non discrimination policy on sex race religion or creed!! So oh well burger king looks like they'll be changing their name to burger queen!!!

    My religion (Neptunicus) doesn't allow me to work very hard. My religion requires me to get a job but not do much. if I am fired for loafing, then that's basically religious discrimination against the Neptunians.

    Everyone here has some good points, but the most telling is the fact that, as an organization, BK has the right to outline uniform standards and failing to meet standards s cause for termination. Some businesses also identify tattoos and piercings in their uniform standards. True, these are not the same as a skirt, but it is a policy. As for the skirt… well, there are plenty of reason not to allow it in a food prep area… and, as I understand, there are OSHA considerations as well. Shock me to hear that ANY construction manager anywhere would allow skirts in a construction site. That manager is looking for a lawsuit or OSHA fine.

    I agree that business should be willing to be flexible and authorized to make certain considerations, whatever hey are based on , including religion. I do, however, stand firm to the fact that people looking for positions need to be equally flexible in meeting the requirements for the position they are hired into.

    Now… if she had something in writing that said her dress would be allowed… whole other ball game.

    Brian, I think you're a bit off in your logic. I respect what you said, but your logic is pretty shaky. Is capitalism a protected religion? If it were a pregnant woman she would have been allowed to wear a maternity uniform and they would have accommodated a handicapped person. It really is just the difference of a little fabric. Besides, she advised them from the beginning and they said it wouldn't be a problem.

    Burger King has the right to enforce their dress code to their employee. It was a'alleged" that she was told a skirt was ok. I'm a conservative christian but think the young lady is in the wrong here. Pants are not mens clothing only these days. The young lady will have to look elswwhere for a job if she can't adjust to the dress code policy. There is no sin in wearing pants. This is "religeon" at its worst.

    When I was in Germany and went to McDonalds all the girls/women wore grey skirts. I thought they looked more classy than the black pants. They also served beer.

    I've personally worked in enough restaurants to know that wearing a long skirt would be a safety hazard, period. It could catch fire, she could trip…it is just not practical. In this instance, her request was not reasonable. Further, there are plenty of places she could work where she could wear a skirt. Department stores, etc. I understand that her religion forbids her to wear pants, and that is fine, but she has to realize that we live in a society where that is most unusual, and she can't expect people to allow her to put herself in danger at work just so that she can follow some rule. Whoever originally said this would not be an issue is at fault as well, because it clearly is.

  783. Gary Abbott

    Food service is the useless appendage of the capitalist system. However, a private enterprise has the right to mandate a dress and personal cleanliness code. But as I would never eat there, I don't care what happens to BK.

    In our country we have freedom of and from religion. It is her right to observe her religion and practices.During the interview she told the manager she was not able to wear pants and they were ok with that. If they said in the beginning it would be a problem then she could have gone elsewhere. In Burger Kings I have seen females of middle eastern religions wearing the head dresses that their religion requires. What is the big deal? Is it because she is a Christian. I say to her "stay strong" We are told in the Bible that we will be persecuted. Before everyone jumps on me about the persecution comment I realize wearing a skirt is not a big deal. But in our country we are so worried about offending someone of another religion or no religion that now the Christians are not able to abide by our beliefs for fear of offending someone else.

    Just another nut case seeking attention. The cry baby needs to grow up and realize she needs to follow the orders of those signing her paycheck. If she doesn't like what the requirements are, then perhaps she should seek employment elsewhere.

  808. Stacy Latino Shilling

    How was she to know that the person was speaking out of turn? It wasn't like she asked a co-worker if she could wear skirts, she told management. Again, I think if they had told her that it was going to be a problem, she probably would have looked elsewhere for employment. Plus, from what I read, they had allowed her up to a certain time to wear them. They had established that it was okay for her to dress that way. They could probably tell future employees that they couldn't do that, but I don't believe legally they could do that to her since they had already let her come that way prior to firing her. Just giving another perspective.

  809. Tim Braman

    I rather think she planted herself there, not unlike the guy who went to Hooters a few years ago to be a waiter, and since they have mini-pants and cleavage tops (and hire mainly young women), was unable to be hired and sued them to make a point. There's plenty of minimum wage places, even fast food, where she can go apply that have a skirt. It doesn't limit anything. I seriously believe it was orchestrated.

    Obviously the person who hired the woman gave her the wrong information. If there is a dress code (like there is at many places of business) you have to abide by the dress code or you don't work there. Religious discrimination my arse. Go work at a Jesus bookstore or similar if you're concerned about wearing clothes that make your god happy.

    What bothers me about this is that she said she was told that she could wear pants. Who interviewed her? The same manager who told her to leave — or someone else? As others have already posted, uniforms are required not just so everyone looks alike, but also for safety reasons. The young lady was aware of this when she went to the interview because she says she brought it up. IF she told the interviewer that she would not wear pants, she should not have been hired. If her long skirt caught in some piece of machinery — even a closing door — causing her to trip, she could endanger others. Actually, if she knew in advance that employees are expected to wear slacks, why did she apply there? Some years ago one of my students told me she could not wear pants for religious reasons and therefore could not work at a fast food restaurant. She KNEW this. She applied for and got a job at a clothing store. No problem. Religious discrimination? Not in this case. Wanting to CREATE a case? Maybe.

    When in America realize our society has social mores and rules, policies and the like. Speak the language, wear the appropriate garb and "fit in" within reason. People are realizing corporate America wins, and the common human loses. Tuff terwilligers. A hostess job may may provision for long black skirts…and women's slacks are sold in America, though probably made in china. We will see much more of this. Stop whining.

    It is religious discrimination and she will win her case, most probably through an out of court settlement. She should have called the EEOC instead of a money hungry lawyer. They would have handled her case and any reward would be hers. Nevertheless, the manager (like so many managers) doesn't know the level of crap he/she is swimming in right now because of not knowing the various types of discrimination.

    Bottom line: On this one, I am on the woman's side, not Burger King's. I'm going to add my comments to the article itself so The Wider World Can Benefit From My Wisdom and Rage, but the topline is this:
    *if you try to tell me you don't want abortions to be able to be performed at a hospital you work at because "of your religious beliefs", my response is "then go work in another field or a hospital that doesn't do that, your religious beliefs are NOT more important than women's right to and need for safe/legal abortions."
    *if you try to tell me that you are a junior-high school Health teacher and you are supposed to cover Human Sexual Orientations and you don’t feel comfortable teaching that people are born gay/bi/straight, because you think Homosexuality is a Sin and a Choice, and you refuse to teach anything but that because “of your religious beliefs” then my response will be “FUUUUUCK YOU and you should NOT be a teacher to ANYONE so teach the approved curriculum or get another job.”.
    *If you try to tell me you don’t want Health Insurance to cover contraception or safe abortions “because of your religious beliefs” my response to you is “your religious beliefs are NOT more important than Women’s Health and Women’s Rights, and PS, BITE ME.”.
    *If you try to tell me you work in a state where gay adoptions are legal and you work for an adoption agency and you try to hinder placing orphans with gay parents, my response is “then you’re fired, your “religious beliefs” are NOT more important than orphans being able to find families and gay people being allowed to have children.
    *HOWEVER, it is NOT more important that Burger King have all it's employees wearing the exact same outfit for reasons of branding or vanity or whatever than it is for someone's religious beliefs. Especially when it could SO EASILY be set up by Burger King or similar companies that they DO have Mandatory Work Uniforms, but maybe 2 or 3 versions that could EASILY conform to Any and All religions that focus on Who Should Wear What. This problem stems from Burger King being Overly Controling. DO I think that MANY religiously based clothing prohibitions truly originally stem from misogynistic or other dynamics? Yes. But bottom line, if a woman WANTS to adhere to the clothing-religion guidelines, or a man too, let them. We have bigger fish to fry in the fight against Evil Done In The Name of religion than wardrobes.

    It's not religious discrimination when food service companies require workers to wear pants for their own safety.

    u read it tho????? in the interview they established she was a skirt wearing girl…so sounds like they should have said no we have uniforms sorry if you can't wear it you can't work it…..Then she would've been wrong to show up in a skirt & would make her $ hungry..SHE told him in the interview & unless he said no thats HIS fault.

    I've worked at places with pentecostal women before and they always let them wear the skirt versions of the pants. She'd still be wearing the uniform shirt and the same material and color as the pants, just as a long skirt. Big deal. It's not a safety hazard. I don't see why they didn't let her.

    I really agree with you. Though there are some good things that religion promotes, it's sad how there's still some ridiculous things about it, like taking away women's human rights. Shows that religion is all man-made. The first christian school I went to even had the rule that all females had to wear skirts or dresses. sigh.

    Pentecostal Christian women where long, almost ankle length, skirts, I have been to many fast food restaurants (Sonic, BK, Mac Donald's, Wendy's, etc.) and I have seen women working in the Kitchen(even at the fryers) wearing long skirts because of their religious beliefs. It is a religious decision and every application for any employer says "We will not discriminate based on race, religion, color or creed" so they would be wrong, many comments only make sense is she is wearing a short skirt (hot grease getting on her, etc) The material these skirts are made of is usually the same as the pants and they are almost as long as the pants. Theses women have worn these skirts since they could walk and they know how to keep from tripping or getting caught on things. Personally I hope she wins. Read the constitution and the right to work laws, they all say one cannot be discriminated from working because of religious beliefs. When she was questioned about the skirt I am sure she told them it was against her religion to wear pants and that should have been the end of it.

    Burger King as with many other companies has rules and regulations…..tough, if the lawsuit favors her, PHUCK the courts, look for a job elsewhere you loser.

  852. Linda Nafula

    very true Charity, however as time goes people have gained religious freedom to be able to wear as they choose. when it comes to a work place you must be able to abide by their rules or else find another job. if the young lady was offered a job as a customer service rep, or retail it wouldn't an issue. I've worked in food service and i remember a lady wearing a dress on casual Friday but since there are so many machines going on it can result in an injury. each person takes Christianity different. I grew up episcopalian and women were aloud to be deacons but i also went to a Missouri synod Lutheran school for 2 yrs and there women couldn't lead the church. so of course it clashed

  853. Thomas Comis

    oh yes, she's cute & amicable & the request was nothing to get upset about, but rules are rules and if a company requires that you wear a uniform or has a dress code then you abide by it or don't work there. as much as I hate burger king & their crummy food, the company has the right to fire her. it isn't a religious discrimination issue, it's a company rule.

  854. Charity Campbell

    there are so many different denominations and views because christianity itself I've come to find out recently is fake.

  855. Alyssa Harley

    Think of all those works of art portraying Jesus in pants.

  856. Samantha Rios

    I'm saddened to see so many comments saying she should suck it up and wear pants or get a new religion. If this was about a woman who's religion required her head to be covered we would be appalled if BK didn't allow her to wear it. And rightfully so. Why is this different because it is a Christian religion?

    I attended a Pentecostal church for years that practiced the same beliefs that women shouldn't wear pants. But we live in a military community and were taught that if you have a job that has a dress code, then since they are paying you, you must abide by their dress code. I don't' care what you believe, the military is not going to allow women to show up to formation in skirts. Yes, the person interviewing her should have checked with the higher-ups first before it was agreed she could wear skirts. But if she has such high moral values then she should have the revelation that she is 17, this is Burger King, and therefore not a big deal. Ugh, she's acting as if they took away her livelihood!

    Josie (whom I WORSHIP and RESPECT and HE'S BRILLIANT and UNQUESTIONABLY DIVINE), I DO hear you on your point. And I AM marginally uncomfortable about ANY time the "my religion tells me it's OK to..so you have to adjust the place where I work to accommodate what I BELIEVE in" because, as you so smartly say, it CAN open a Pandora's Box. But I can be worried about where granting someone certain right (or acknowledging the pre-existing rights) is going to take us if we go further down the road (ie. accepting religious clothing desires on workplaces today, will that lead to accepting religious opinions about gays or contraception or abortion tomorrow) but even if I do worry, I think the right thing for us to do is to say if someone's religion wants them to wear things, not work on a sabbath if that's their religions big thing, or have kosher food available at work cafeterias, let's DO that. And if it DOES lead to religion-impacting-on-workplaces down the road that ARE oppressive/inhumane (anti-women's rights/anti-gay rights/anti-Muslim rights, whatever), we really need to wait to see If and When we get there, and IF we do, we will fight that battle (with every breath in my body) then.

    She should have not even showed up to work at a place that requires women to wear pants in the first place if she felt like this to begin with, she knew girls don't wear skirts at Burger king! I'm quite sure that many jobs would except her wearing her skirts but not certain ones that require a certain uniform to work in, duh! BTW, I thought those Pentacostal women weren't "allowed" to work. All the ones I've ever known stayed home and babysat their children and were submissive to their husbands, the man worked and the wife stayed home and that's that.I think she's wanting attention and money too! Maybe she'll hire a woman lawyer that wears skirts, not pants.

    Enough is Enough she knew that BK wore a black pants why do they have to change their rules to suit her if they for everyone with a preference the there would be no uniform. Everyday these people wake and find a way to get money without working.

    What is the difference between religious discrimination and any other discrimination (like sexual orientation)…Absolutely nothing. Wearing skirts doesn't prohibit her to do her job correctly, however suing Burger King may have been a little much.

    What is this "sue your employer week". This is the second suit posted. The other one was because a Muslim couldn't wear her scarf at Disney….now here is one who cannot wear her skirt. Businesses have dress codes. If you want to work there, you have to abide by them. I do not see were she has a suit…it is he said, she said. Both she and the lawyer just want to get some easy money….sometimes I wonder what some of these lawyers are thinking when they take on such ridiculous cases…

    She had a verbal contract with her hiring manager, which Burger King abrogated when they fired her for not following corporate guidelines. The process is broken and this law suit has placed on the front burner. Whereas I do not agree with her biblical scholarship and her over-emphasis on judgement as opposed to mercy, she made it clear that she would not wear pants during the interview. Burger King and other corporations have their codes of conduct and it should have been made clear to her that she should not apply if she could not abide by them. Since, however, they did hire her after she made it clear that her conscience could not condone the pants, it is my opinion that Burger King should recompence her for this error and that she is a simple unsusfisticated Christian should not enter into the discussion. The verbal contract was abrogated with the understanding that the corporation had nothing to lose by lying. It is the place of the judge and jury to send a clear message that just because you have power and money, you should not lie during negotiations. Kudos to this young lady for standing up for the rights of the little people. Burger King loses. I won't eat there again until they make restitution.

    The next thing you know, she's suing cause she slipped and fell. Trying to get paid without working. Most companies have rules and regs. If you don't like, apply somewhere else that doesn't mind you walking around in a dress cause you're surely not working. Maybe she misunderstood the answer to the dress code. Fast food is labor.I worked at McDonald's in the early 70's and can't imagine mopping floors in a dress or running up and down stairs to replace the frozen foods in a dress. Now what if the dress code was dresses? Would she sue to wear the pants?
