We have a dress code in my office. Should I sue if I don't like that?

Apparently you shouldn't unless you're a Muslim woman.

If the jury has any sense, that case won't make it very far. But they are in Boston, after all... so who knows?

If the wearing of the hijab is part of practicing her religion, is forcing her NOT to wear one not an infringement of her rights to freedom of religion?

That's what I am wondering. Of course I don't know the whole story, but I'm not sure why she couldn't have adhered to the dress code and still worn her hijab. It's especially ridiculous b/c she was in the stock room, so it's not even an issue of customer comfort.

It's ridiculous. They first hired her and said it was ok to wear a hijab as long as it had the company's color, then out of nowhere they told her to remove it? .
