1.Nathan Pentz tweeted earlier this month that his partner, Jess, went to buy condoms at a store in Hayward because she forgot her birth control. He said when she went to the checkout, the cashier said he would not ring up the condoms, because of his faith. In a statement to NBC News, a Walgreens spokesperson said its employee's actions did not violate company policy. "Our policies are designed to ensure we meet the needs of our patients and customers while respecting the religious and moral beliefs of our team members," the spokesperson said. Do you agree with Walgreens policy?
2."The instances are rare, however when a team member has a moral or religious conviction about completing a transaction, they are required to refer the customer to another employee or manager on duty who will complete the transaction, which is what occurred in this instance." the spokesperson continued. What do you think is the right course of action?
Keep things the way they are, another employee can help the customer
If an employee cannot sell things due to religious convictions, they should not work in that area of the store
If an employee cannot sell things due to religious convictions, they should not work there
