“5 Ks of Sikhismâ€
“5 Ks of Sikhismâ€ Please respond to the following:
Jan alleged that the harassment began when he converted to Sikhism in 2009. The managers at the store refused to let him wear a turban and a Kara, a bracelet, which are required for male Sikhs. He was also harassed and asked if he had joined al-Qaida and whether he was a terrorist. When customers referred to him as “Bin Laden” and made terrorist jokes, AutoZone did not intervene. When Burroughs complained and asked for an accommodation, he was fired.
- What are the 5 Ks of Sikhism? Which one intrigues you the most?
- Did management do the right thing? Why or Why not?
- If you were the manager, how would you handle this situation?
