Iowa Appeals Court

     EMPLOYMENT – The appeals court found that a nurse supervisor was properly fired for not investigating an employee’s claim that a co-worker exposed his genitals to her. The agency did not act irrationally, illogically, or wholly unjustifiably in its determination that the failure to immediately investigate amounted to just cause for the discharge. Affirmed. See ruling.
     DAMAGES – The appeals court affirmed the damage award granted to a woman who found a metal strand from a scouring pad in her Kentucky Fried Chicken sandwich. J. Vaitheswaran found that she was properly awarded $81 for the cost of a dental visit and $500 for anxiety. See ruling.
