Man gets 50gs from micky d's

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - McDonald's has agreed to pay $50,000 to settle a lawsuit that claimed it discriminated against a Muslim employee who wasn't allowed to grow a beard. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission says the settlement was reached Thursday with McDonald's Restaurants of California. According to the suit, Shaheed Khan was a crew trainer at a Fresno McDonald's in 2005 when he asked to wear a beard to work, citing religious beliefs. He quit after the request was refused. The commission filed a lawsuit alleging civil rights violations. Under the settlement, McDonald's agreed to pay $50,000 to Shaheen and to reinforce training of its managers and staff on existing anti-discrimination policies. The company didn't acknowledge any wrongdoing.
