Iowa doesn't notify workers on do-not-rehire list

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A spokesman says Iowa's executive branch no longer tells fired workers when they are added to the state's "do-not-rehire list" and waits to break the bad news only if they ever apply for another state job.

Department of Administrative Services spokesman Caleb Hunter said Wednesday the change came in response to administrative law judges who ruled that state officials don't have the legal authority to issue blanket employment bans against fired workers. Instead, those judges ruled that state officials can disqualify applicants on a case-by-case basis based on previous firings.

Instead of ending the practice of barring some ex-employees for life, Hunter says the department limited how it notifies those affected.

The department previously notified employees at the time of their firings that they were barred from future state employment.
