Honestly, that story strikes me as something that would have happened here first. We file law suits like its a hobby here in the states.
Well, they do still have rights in that line of work.
And I guess it is a logical assumption for a painter to assume he will not be subjected to paint fumes in the work place.
I would imagine it would have to be paid for and voluntary. Still can't force someone, no matter the occupation. And you'd have to pay them, of course. I don't work for free, either.
That said, how would you prove that in a court full of your peers?
So if you have sex with a prostitute and then don't pay, does that count as rape, or shoplifting?
Probably depends on whether You take the merchandise home or not...
I guess shoplifting, in the sense that you didn't force her, you just lied that you would pay her.
That would be obtaining credit by deception.
The Western world will be utterly destroyed by abuse of.civil tort law.
Good on her. Just because she is a prostitute, that doesn't mean that she should be subject to that kind of abuse.
Come on, clearly she was asking for it...
This just goes to show you...now more then ever,
...Pimpin ain't easy.
Yes, I'm okay with this. Actually I am more than okay with this.
While you're being sarcastic, what you've stated is absolutely true.
I'm a professional industrial painter and my work requires (by government mandate) approved ventilation and certified respirators as well as other strict health, safety and environmental standards be followed.
If my employer failed to comply with these requirements so that I were to be exposed to paint fumes he would be subject to fines by NIOSH (formerly OSHA) and the company could be liable for damages or even criminally prosecuted.
In the case of a prostitute who works for a professional business, I can't imagine anyone more needing of protection from sexual harassment. The fact that so many people assume that a prostitute should simply accept sexual harassment as part of the job demonstrates just how much the legal protection against harassment is necessary.
Technically, it's referred to as "Theft of service"
