Suppose I’m a hiring manager. And I’m interviewing for an open position. Can I legitimately use the fact that one of the candidates showed up for the interview in his pajamas as a reason not to consider him for employment?
How about if one of the candidates pulls out a cigarette and lights up. How about that? Can I use that fact to disqualify a candidate?
So, if I can discriminate against jammy wearing smokers, why can’t I discriminate against people who won’t go and get a job?
