Florida McDonald's Being Sued By EEOC For Discrimination

A McDonald's just north of Orlando is accused of discrimination for not hiring a Hasidic Jewish job applicant.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed suit against the Longwood franchise owner this week.

They allege the hiring manager told the job-seeker that he had to shave his beard if he wanted the part-time maintenance position.

The EEOC says the applicant offered to instead wear a beard net as he could not shave due to religious beliefs, but that solution was reportedly denied.
