The wave of lawsuits by Muslims against the companies who where kind enough to hire them continues as UPS has just settled its suit with eight Muslim women over their dress code. Terms were not disclosed but obviously this is a victory for the plantiffs and this will only encourage more lawsuits by Muslims.

TORONTO - Eight Muslim women who filed a human rights complaint against the United Parcel Service (UPS) over the dress code have settled with the company.
According to the Toronto Star, the case was heard before a Canadian Human Rights tribunal, Monday morning.
The terms of the settlement will not be released.
The women, all devout Muslims, lost their jobs in 2005 because they refused to hike their skirts above the knee over their long pants. They alleged discrimination.
UPS said the ankle-length skirts were a safety hazard as workers climb ladders up to six metres high.
