    Re: Why did a Disneyland cast member get fired because of her ?

    According to the details of the news story i saw on KCAL, the cast member who worked at the Storyteller Cafe wanted to wear her traditional muslim headdress with her costume. The park management deemed it did not fall within regulations and offered to design her an alternative headwear to go with her costume. She refused. They then offered her a position that did not have her interact with guests. She refused that as well.

    She had the ACLU file suit against the company on her behalf. That's about all I saw reported.

            That's totally incorrect. The lawsuit was just now filed.

              As much as I wish this woman would walk away empty handed, I'm getting the feeling that Disney will settle out of court, and she'll end up with a 5 figure paycheck. I imagine Disney would sooner pay the woman to shut her up, than have her tell the public (in TV and newspaper interviews) that she was "persecuted by Disney for her religious beliefs." You, me, and she knows that such a story is B.S., but John Q Public might not, and such a claim could be a PR nightmare for Disney.

                Also incorrect. You and I don't know the details of the case, and therefore can't tell whether it is bs or not.

                Read this post for more details of the case.

                  If she was just granted the right to sue by the EEOC on August 8th, what exactly did she lose?

                      Annoying that in this day and age there is still discrimination in this country.

                        Normally when we have multiple threads on the same topic we merge them together. In this case however I think some continuity might be lost on the other thread. Therefore since there is already an open, active thread regarding this subject this one will be close.
