If the person represents the company to the outside world, absolutely yes. <br />
If the person works in an enclosed office, pretty much yes as well.<br />
If the person works on the production floor, the mine, the field, probably not.
Hell yes. He's got to work with other people, even if he or she never sees costumers. Everyone has the right to work in a comfortable environment. Mr stinky is making it uncomfortable so Mr. Stinky has to go.
Yes, after a couple of warnings. There is probably a better way to resolve this issue before it becomes a problem. <br />
However, there should be some exceptions. If this employee is a laborer or the job requires a lot of physical work, no. It is unreasonable to expect everyone doing yard work or construction to smell good. If they are a CPA or teacher, smelling decent should be expected. The person may not know or realize. Being tactful is advisable.
After due warning and following the correct disciplinary procedure, yes. I knew a guy once who was given a caution for being 'smelly' - he certainly was!
yeaaah thats like you warning someone to do there work an not firing them after wanring them repeatedly!
if it's a will to work state the employer can fire them because they don't like red and red just happens to be the bosses favorite color. it it's not then after talking to the employee about it, then checking with the company attorney, then i hope so. <br />
unless the job makes them stink. then everybody probably stinks so no one cares.
give him an outside job
Provided it's something they can control or if it interferes with business. You can fire people for no cause here though....so it may be better to do that.
In the UK, you can bring this to the attention of the HR department. They will listen to both parties and gather statements from other people who work with the smelly person. I knew one guy who was told to go home and come back smelling like roses but he never came back to work again.
Well I'd say no.
Not if the stinker has a serious case of hemorroids.
after they fire you, you might want to see a lawyer
