Blacklisted Workers File Lawsuit
DES MOINES, Iowa (CBS 2/Fox 28) -- Former employees in Iowa's Executive Branch are suing the state saying that the blacklist which prevents some former employees from re-gaining employment is illegal.
The lawsuit was filed in Polk County District Court earlier today.
Those involved in the case claim that they were put on the list without their knowledge and denied due process.
They also claim that the state does not have the authority to disqualify fired workers from employment with all Executive Branch agencies.
