EEOC v. Oak-Rite Mfg. Corp., 2001 WL 1168156 (S.D. Ind. Aug. 27),
rejects a Title VII religious accommodation claim brought by a woman who
felt a religious obligation to wear a skirt rather than pants. The employer
had a pants-only rule justified by safety concerns; the rule "is intended to
reduce the exposure of skin to sharp metal parts and the risk that loose
clothing could become stuck on parts or machinery."
