    I work at IBM, a company with a strict anti-discriminaton policy in their Arizona office.  That law would make it legal for me to discriminate against non-Muslims (or whatever) and if IBM were to fire me then I could sue them and win for violating my religious beliefs.  The same applies to those working at the DMV or even ambulance drivers in Arizona.

    In other words, both business owners and individual employees can discriminate though it does not say what happens if there is a conflict between the employee's religious beliefs and the employer's regarding discrimination as both are given equal weight under that law.

    You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.

      at least

      There is no way an employee would have more power than an employer in AZ. At least so far as I have seen I have never worked for IBM or places that consider employees as valuable commodities.
