What would you do with Kate Moss?

What would you do with Kate Moss? More to the point, asks Randall Northam in the Times today, what would you do if you employed Kate Moss?

Öwhat if she was an ordinary employee and took recreational drugs and by some mischance got her picture doing it into the papers?

Would you, as an employer, have any rights to sack such an employee on the spot? Unlikely, unless your contracts have a morals clause in them, and most normal employment contracts do not.

But it would probably be a very different story were Kate employed in the USA - as 24 year old Isac Aguero of Racine, Wisconsin found out earlier this year. He was fired from his job with a Miller Brewing distributor after a picture appeared in the Journal Times of Racine of him drinking a Bud Light, which is brewed by rival Anheuser-Busch.
