State HR Dir Talks "Do Not Hire" List

Des Moines, IA (AP) The state's top human resources officer says the most common reason state workers are excluded from being considered for rehire is for bad behavior or poor performance.

Michelle Minnehan, human resources chief operating officer for the state, told the Senate Government Oversight Committee on Thursday the reasons workers are fired and not eligible for rehire have included abuse of sick leave, falsification of records, urinating on prison inmates' food, and sexual harassment.

Minnehan was responding to questions in a broadening investigation into state hiring and firing practices.

The state released a list last week to The Associated Press containing 975 names of disqualified former workers. State officials had previously said no actual list existed.

Lawmakers report getting calls from former state workers shocked to find they're on the list.
