"Several or our warehouse employees are foreign, and their personal hygiene isn't the greatest. Neither is the smell in the summertime. If we require them to use deodorant, can we be sued for discrimination?"
"I have reason to believe that one of our supervisors is using street drugs. He doesn't do it during work hours or on work premises. Can we require him to seek treatment as a condition of continued employment?"
"We're in the process of hiring, and one of our candidates was convicted of sexual misconduct. It was a misdemeanor, not a felony. Are we allowed to consider this conviction when making our hiring decision? I say no, but my boss says yes - who's right?"
"One of my employees posed for a Playboy spread. That's not the image our company wants to portray - can I legally fire her?"
