EEOC Sues Company Over Refusal To Accommodate Muslim Women Employees' Dress Requirements

The EEOC announced this week that it has filed a Title VII lawsuit against Washington-state based Aviation Port Services, a  provider of support services to airlines.  The company fired six Muslim female passenger service agents at its Boston location for violating a requirement that they wear company-provided pants or knee-length skirts at work. It refused to accommodate the women's religious obligation to wear long skirts instead.
