Now wait for the ironic conclusion where the woman loses both arms in an accident caused because she was too short, and has pretty much screwed herself out of suing for that.

this lady must of really needed a job bad and was stuck in life or death situation so she decided to just sue them just for the hay of it.....UFFA
Or she just wanted to get paid. How many people would sue Burger King if they were liable for putting pickels on a burger when you ordered it without them? A lot more people than you think.

Interesting story for sure. I'm one that doesn't like to stretch the rules at all, but the employer could have saved suit if they hired her from the beginning.... it's just 1 inch difference....

Yeah that sounds somewhat reasonable, but I would make her sign something that tells her that this is the only job available and that she doesn't meet the high requirments dictated for safety purposes. She can have the job, but the company is not liable for her safety in this specific position.

Then again, you can "only one inch" it several times over. Next thing you know, 4'9" people would be working it. You have to draw the line somewhere and abide by it otherwise having a line in the first place is pretty much a waste of time.

Exactly why I don't like to stretch the rules, even once. Most of the time, if you do it once, you do it again... and at an even more flexible level. Agreed that some sort of waiver would also be needed so that she couldn't sue when she got injured. Too many sue-happy people around, and even more lawyers available to represent them.

depending on other legal precedence, even a waiver insn't necessarily guarunteed protection.
