Default If you're hot enough to be 'irresistible,' you can be fired in Iowa

Iowa bosses can fire employees for being irresistible

Why does she have to lose her job, because he cannot control his desires? I'm missing something.

I saw that on CNN earlier. The sad thing is she worked there for ten years, and he gets to fire her just because his wife got jealous. Its totally ridiculous and unfair.

Good question. I can't believe it got upheld by the state supreme court. I guess the rationale is that you can legally fire anyone for any reason, as long as its not discrimination of any kind (racial,sexual, etc). I guess they're saying she wasn't fired because she's a woman specifically, it was more of a personal conflict. Still seems a bit of a stretch to me, but I'm not a lawyer.

I wonder if this would have happen if the job is a union workplace??? I doubt it very seriously. Maybe the wives should fire their husbands!

she's been working there for 10 years. If the guy can't keep it in his pants that's his problem. An all-male court decided this. A normal guy should be insulted. They're basically implying that the modern man is still a base animal who can't use basic logic

Legal doesn't always mean ethical. I think that is the aspect we are most concerned with. Simply accepting that opens the door for more abuses

Apparently being good looking also makes you more likely to get a raise and promotion, so I guess you have to take the good with the bad.

The law does not concern itself with ethics. According to the law the employer did nothing illegal in terminating this woman. That's all there is to it. The ethics are a completely different discussion. Legally the man is in the right.

Part of the problem in the US is the law working for the wrong things instead of the right things. The courts, especially the convservatives courts are treating companies as people instead of entities.

Fortunately, we have juries that can take ethics into account. I think the jury would receive orders from the judge not to consider something like looks, just the law. But they will likely not follow the orders and a little fairness might slip in to their decision.

I do not know if you are correct or not. Odd thing is, we read about these cases and we wonder how can a company get away with this "illegal" thing. All the while, not understanding they are allowed by law to do it. Some pretty crazy things are legal.

Can I fire (or hire, the other side of the coin) someone because of their skin color? It might be legal, but we still have courts that terminated employees can use to take this guy's money. I am betting I can't use skin color as a basis for hiring or firing someone.

This idea that you can be fired for being too cute is interesting in that there is another side: getting fred for being too fat or ugly. I am sure Calvin Klein can fire you for being too fat or ugly if you represent his company.

Seems to me that if I can fire a person because of how they look; being too cute in this case, then I can fire people because they look too dark.

So you can fire me because I am ugly as a boiled dragon? Perhaps it is your right. And I can sue you and take your cash which is my right. I am being ethical and you are not, so I win, HA HA HA!

I guess we should make looks a protected class?

next we'll be required to have supermodels that look like rocky dennis? (look that up if you dont know)

hooters will be required to hire 600 pound women

or maybe we can just ban sexual desire

it will be a crime punishable by death to find another person attractive

the problem isnt workplace ethics...... or courtroom legislation..... or any other fantasy that can be dreamed up......

the problem is people looking for the silliest reasons to advance agendas

sometimes we get a little too carried in trying to fabricate individual rights

in a case like this by law the employer had every legal right to fire her for any reason he wanted.......... she could have been fired for having hammer toes or crossed eyes just as legally

I agree its sad that she worked there for 10 years before this became an issue....... and the guy should be ashamed of himself for his lack of self control and loose morals

but as many of you crying about how she was wronged are so fond of arguing...... we cannot and should not legislate morality

one other aspect that nobody has considered however...... since this guy is a dentist who obviously admits he cannot control his sexual urges....... should he really be trusted with patients? I know I wouldnt be a patient of his

Assuming she wins of course. If not then its still shame on her for being attractive. Maybe he should have given her a chance to get a quasi moto (or however you spell it) face lift. That would have been more than fair.

Is it a ridiculous law? I'm not sure it is. At the other end is a world where employers need "'good" reasons to fire people and you have judges who have to decide which reasons are "good" and which ones aren't.

There is a big difference between the written law and feelings. I was not there. Perhaps this dental assistant was a distraction. Perhaps the dentist's wife was a jealous type. If so, I can see his point.

Perhaps this is not the first jealous wife that told her hubby to get rd of "that" woman. I do not know the case that prompted this change in the law, just the highlights that might not tell the complete story.

We live in a world where inferior teachers are next to impossible to fire. If you do a little research, you might find that bad union employees can be hard to fire as well. Tenured professors cannot be easily terminated.

We are forced to hire people we might not want to hire and if some supervisor comments on how a woman looks, chances are, there will be a lawsuit, if the woman takes offence. I about know someone who was called on the carpet to answer why he would not hire a large woman who came in for an interview. The job required being in a light aircraft and she was simply too big to fit in the seat.

Companies are no longer private concerns in that forces on the outside influences who you must, by law, be required to hire and who you cannot easily fire. I think you should be able to fire or hire anyone you want without a law that mandates you must hire specific people. Let an outraged public voice their displeasure with their pocketbooks.

I do not know about the case that prompted the law. For all we know, this dental assistant was a tease or a problem. Again, all we have is a story about the new law or ruling tat lets you fire a hot assistant. As a man, I am all for hiring hot people.

In thinking about this, I am left wondering what the difference is between firing someone for being too hot and not hiring a woman because she is too fat, flat chested or ugly? Is there any real difference? If you cant fire someone because he is too hot, can you then start hiring woman only if they are hot?

I think the person that fired this woman is crazy. We need more hot people in the workplace, not fewer.

Did any of you read the full story or simply glance at the highlights?

"He said the decision was in line with state and federal court rulings that found workers can be fired for relationships that cause jealousy and tension within a business owner's family. One such case from the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a business owner's firing of a valued employee who was seen by his wife as a threat to their marriage. In that case, the fired employee had engaged in flirtatious conduct."

Apparently, a similar case (cases) went before other courts as well as the 8th Circuit so the Iowa law is based in previous cases. Read the following article for a more complete look at the case being discussed in this thread.

Iowa court: Bosses can fire 'irresistible' workers

It is easy to say this is a bad law, but I am not so sure about that. Looks are so very subjective.

So change the law. Make it illegal to fire someone who is too cute or far too lovely. Who decides who is too pretty or not pretty enough?

Perhaps a general law that says nobody can be fired for their looks, period. Does the new law include tattoos on the face or a bone through the nose? I can well imagine a tattoo covered person with a bone through his or her nose will be listened to in the boardrooms of Apple or GE.

I think companies should be allowed to fire you, hire you or not hire you for any reason, including gender, religion and race.

I am sure there are companies that would prefer to not hire black people. I say let them have their way and my guess is the public will be outraged, the company will suffer and we won't need to go to court.

I don't think employers should be able to fire for just any reason. You hired them because you thought they would live up to your expectations, and if they continue to do so and give no actual reason to be fired, why fire them?

If an employee does start to lack on why you hired them, or just don't live up to the potential you see in them, sure let them go. But if they are doing their job how they are supposed to, and meeting expectations why punish them?

Thats just my thoughts..

Unfortunately, it often spins out of control. You hire a pregnant woman that started strong and just cannot keep up and you fire her FOR THAT REASON, there is a chance you will be sued because you fired a pregnant woman.

Ditto all other protected classes. You fire them for legitimate reasons and they sometimes return with their lawyers.

I think you should be able to hire or fire anyone for any reason. Lots of people are (and always have been) fired for reasons that employers will never say publicly. You fire a black person because he "cant perform his job." You fire a pregnant woman because "she might come into contact with solvents" You likely will never know that the reasons these people were fired is because their supervisors hate black people and things pregnant women are ugly.

Nothing new here.

Or . . . perhaps Quasimoto is just too ugly, so out he goes, too.

Seems to me, thr law has spoken. If you can fire lovely people because their looks are a distraction, Quasimoto does not stand a chance, either.

So "feelings and emotions" = facts now? This dentist must be thought of highly in this state because common folks probably won't even make a dent like this to change state laws.

Yes, I totally agree. It's a curse I've had to deal with my entire life.

I just can't understand it. I can see if the woman was coming to work done up overly provocatively and wouldn't stop, but if she just happened to be beautiful then she certainly has a case against the employer.

On a side note, I'm sure this has done wonders for her ego though, she's probably getting a whole MESS of attention.

I get this feeling that startlingly beautiful women will get by somehow. I think the biggest threat is to the average dogface who can now be fired for reasons that now seem reasonable in comparison.

Why does she have to lose her job, because he cannot control his desires? I'm missing something.
Because she's a sl*t?

Huh. No wonder why I can't get a job there. Makes sense. Go figure, right? I mean, right?
