The employer invited themself when they ask about your dependents, emergency contacts and their relation to you, company parties that invite spouses, etc.

It's a good question.

Here's another one...

Why is the only know remedy for busy bodies sticking their nose in gay people's sexual affairs a state-issued marriage license that makes their sexual affairs a matter of public record?

The state assumed the right to make sure people were treated fairly, and was correct to do so.

Except for the guy who pays the bills

And "fairly" is a subjective term.

So you are saying an employer can fire you for being black and state that as the reason? Of for being Jewish, or Christian?


Title VII of the Civil Rights Act

Under Title VII, employers with at least 15 employees cannot discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

The theory being that the market is self-correcting and we the consumers would shun such behavior to the point they would be out of business. If it was in fact so objectionable to most people.

Why do employers feel the need to barge into people's bedrooms ?

The state does have that right. It says so in the Constitution.

What you mean to say is that YOU dont believe the state should have that right.

Those don't seem like hiring practices that are going to get our country in gear.....

I would tend to agree with you in terms of very small businesses where one is hiring a couple people to help them at a very personal level. But millions are in workplaces where this is not the case. Qualifications and merit and the willingness to work should be the driving force there.

Taking your simplistic statement to the ultimate reach....we'd have let all the monopolies thrive (who is too tell a successful owner that they can't own more) and then control the government at various levels and make sure wages and benefits are low and....WAIT...that is what made America terrible again!

So, as with anything else, the answer is somewhere in the middle. If what someone does in the bedroom is between them and themselves and consenting partners, why should that be involved in the hiring process?

Should someone who does Yoga be given demerits if "theBoss" wants it so?
