Sure you can, it's happened before. I think a female cop, or a security guard, got fired because she was too good looking.

I've been fired from several jobs because the women there just couldn't keep their hands off me. I don't know what it is, but women just get all hot and bothered when I'm around.

What each person feels is sexy is different, this is way to subjective and argumentative. This ruling is a joke giving employers another reason to fire someone. This sets bad precedence. Now I have to becareful not to bend over and show off my great behind (of course thats only my opinion :supergrin:)

I know you can be fired because one of your co-workers refuses to let you help her file. That's what happened to me, just 1 week ago...

and with me owing a speeding ticket and my tags coming due this month, and Christmas (Jesus' birthday) in a few days

So if you can legally be terminated for being too attractive, can you similarly be fired for being too unattractive? AFAIK, ugly people are not a protected class.

Personally, I will never have to worry about this. I’m ugly to the bone. Even the dog wouldn’t play with me as a kid. He even tried to bury me on more than one occasion.

I think it’s pretty crappy of an employer to fire their employee’s based on their looks. At the time the employee was just an applicant the employer was already aware of this person’s appearance. An employee should be judged on their work performance and how well they work with others.

I work in manufacturing, we get a lot of temps for certain jobs. This one female working foreman, didn’t like it, when young pretty females would show up for temp positions. At the end of their shift on their first day, she would tell them it wasn’t working out and that person wouldn’t be needed any longer. The company finally got ticked about why we were going through so many temps. Then they finally caught on to what she was doing. That female working foreman no longer does this.

This pisses me off, like most things I've read in the news, lately.

She did nothing wrong. He did something he shoudln't, asking about her orgasms, and his wife got pissed so the hottie loses her job. The fact he couldn't think of a good excuse as a guise for the real reason is even more telling that she didn't deserve her new unmloyed status.

We often can't get rid of worthless people due to some misconception that they are equal, yet somehow more deserving due to gender/race.

The fact the courts agreed with the doctor and his wife, who is obviously homely, doesn't surprise me.

Another article.


http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2012/12/22/james_knight_melissa_nelson_dentist_fires_employee_for_being_irresistible.html


"In a unanimous ruling, the justices ruled that having an “irresistible attraction” is enough of a justification enough to fire someone. It doesn’t matter if the person has not engaged in any kind of inappropriate or even flirtatious behavior and wouldn’t consider touching her employee with a 10-foot pole. Sure, that may not be exactly fair, conceded the justices, but it doesn’t constitute unlawful discrimination. Knight insisted Nelson wasn’t fired for her gender."

Being beautiful has some perks, but contrary to what most may think, it usually sucks big time. One has to deal with lot of BS - like proving itself, fighting the stereotypes and it applies to both man and woman. Lucky me, I don't have such problem. :rofl:

Not sure I'd refer to the Iowa Supreme Court as "the high court." My guess would be, the federal courts will find that IS unlawful discrimination, shortly.

If workers can be fired for being too attractive and being a beautiful distraction, then I can specifically hire only attractive beautiful distracting workers.


I should have thought of this before I retired. The Hell with the business.


This sounds like the Muslim claim that the woman is responsible for a man not being able to control his behaviour when he sees "her", and she gets punished or killed for it.

Boss says to himself:

1. She's soooooooo HAWT!

2. If I tell her how hot she is she can sue me for sexual harassment.

3. I can fire without cause in this state.

Problem solved (but I sure would have liked to have 'brushed her tonsils.')

I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if this case doesn’t spark a lot more sexual harassment lawsuits in the workplace in Iowa.

At-Will Employment.

I remember a similar case in New York few years ago. A Hot little Latina office worker dressed to show off her assets in every way possible. It too seems she was discriminated against for her good looks - she was fired for no reason.

Turns out she slept with the wrong Married Senior Manager at her firm. Eighty-sixing her was a condition the dude's old lady made not to divorce him.

The moral of the story is don't dip you pen in company ink.
