See precedent for “Attractive Nuisance”.....i..e, a neighbor’s unfenced pool, unfenced trampoline, et al....
Not only did they turn a simple decision into mindless gobble-de-gook, they wasted a bunch of time an money doing it
You cannot force people to LIKE each other- we had one employee we hired because he looked good on paper, but he turned out to be a TOTAL JERK that everyone hated
We were a little surprised at the glowing reviews his previous employer gave him, when they knew he was interviewing with us
We fired his a$$ and he sued- but he was white so he lost
Why then did he hire her in the first place? (Wife not present at the time?)
Certainly goes a long way toward explaining why I lost so many jobs as a wild and handsome youth; the women just couldn’t resist me - one of the reasons I was too distracted to do my job and took so many unauthorized days off.
Just too darned good-looking.
Oddly, the kooks on the Iowa Supreme Court seem to recognize that employer-employee relationship is mutual and un-coerced. Just as one may quit for any reason, one may be let go for any reason. The employee can collect unemployment, as there is no allegation the employee acted improperly.
No pictures - how can we make an informed judgement?
Affirmative Action for ugly people.
Uh oh. Obama’s attention whore sex pistols...
Call Sandra Fluke...y!!!!
Bill Clinton should’ve fired Monica Lewinsky. Hillary should fire Huma.
Went to the WP to see PICTURES of these incredible creatures...and all I saw was Big Bird.
Despite this ruling, I suspect attractive females will still find more doors open to them than unattractive females.
Interesting thought: If they say it is OK to fire a woman because she is too good looking, wonder if they would also say it is OK to fire a woman because she is NOT good looking?
Well lets get it right. The Dentist’s wife made the Dentist fire the asst he was attracted to becuase she thought it endangered their marriage. :-)
Should be able to fire people in general.
So what about the firing “for any reason” mantra so often expressed around here?
As a “lower-case” libertarian, I support firing for any reason. And yes, there are times when it might be completely unfair. But it’s not the govt’s job to make fair; the community, media, and market should handle that.
Fire away, statists.
frankly, I personally believe that by the foundational prinicipals in the Constitution “discrimination” on any grounds is allowed all of us in our private consensual affairs, including employment; it is only government and government institutions that cannot “discriminate” because the government is everyone’s government
we are entitled to our personal values and value systems in our private lives, but in government we are required to leave our personal prejudices at the door
leaving our prejudices at the door, when it comes to the government, means we cannot write our own prejudices into the law, and it also means the law cannot force us into personal associations our own values are not in agreement with
Did she somehow become better looking since he hired her?
I wish more people would realize that unfair does not mean and should not mean unlawful all or even most of the time.
Life sucks. Wear a helmet.
Smells supiciously of sharia law. Can’t have women show their faces or their ankles because men can’t control their little mohammeds.
