EEOC Sues Over Dress Code Accommodation

EEOC announced Monday that it has filed suit against Georgia Blue, a Mississippi- based chain of restaurants which refused to grant an employee a religious accommodation to allow her to wear a blue skirt instead of the required blue jeans.  A job offer to Kaetoya Watkins to work as a restaurant server was rescinded when she told the company that her Apostolic Pentecostal religious belief requires her to wear only skirts or dresses.  AP reports on the lawsuit.
