sorry but freedom of religion does not exempt one from following a company's dress code

A Seattle-area Muslim man is suing his former employer, claiming he was fired as a security guard for refusing to shave the beard he wears for religious reasons.

Yeah, I don't like when someone thinks that their religion makes them exempt from something that everyone else is subjected to.

I'd probably be fired as well if I were to repeatedly ignore mandates to shave my beard.

I just don't see the point of this. Is his beard really getting the way of the quality of his work? No. So I hope things go his way.

Frankly I don't see the point of any company policy that prohibits such things. It should be that all beards should be trimmed neatly, but you shouldn't ban beards all together. I mean...why? It's not like beards offend people, men walk around with all manner of facial hair every day.

Only if it's a legitimate safety concern for specific jobs do I think it's necessary, but I don't see how that applies to a security guard, especially since his doesn't extend past his chin.

Well you can disagree with the policy if you want to, but that doesn't make a person justified in breaking it.

I had to shave my beard when I worked at a damn grocery store in high school. I have no sympathy for this guy.
