If You’re Fat, No Need To Apply

VIAMSN.com-A Texas hospital already facing a lawsuit for discrimination has again made itself the target of intense criticism over its hiring practices. The Citizens Medical Center in Victoria, Texas, says it won’t hire anyone considered overweight, declaring that applicants must have a body mass index less than 35. Only Michigan and six U.S. cities have laws against weight-related hiring practices, so the policy could be legal — at least for now. Last year, the hospital was sued by three cardiologists of Indian descent who said they had been discriminated against, so if you’re an overweight Indian doctor looking for a job we strongly suggest you apply elsewhere.
