Burger King Fires Woman For Wearing Skirt to Work

Ashanti McShan, who's a "Pentecostal of Christian faith and adheres to an interpretation of the scripture that requires women to wear only skirts or dresses," has slapped Burger King with a federal lawsuit after a manager fired her for wearing a skirt to work. According to the complaint (which you can read, below), during her interview for a cashiering job, she was told she could wear skirts to work instead of uniform pants, but when she showed up for orientation at restaurant in Grand Prairie, Texas, the store manager told her she couldn't wear skirts and told her to leave. She's seeking unspecified damages for pain and suffering, humiliation, embarrassment, and emotional distress, inconvenience and loss of enjoyment of life.
