    Corporal punishment in the work place

    If a private company wishes to institute corporal punishment as part of its workplace policies, should it be allowed to do so?

    In theory, employees are not forced to accept it - they could choose to work elsewhere if they want. Does that mean it should be legal?

    It would be up the company in question - and it would be agreed upon by the employee before being hired.

    Perhaps nut crunching, or titty twisting, or spanking, or selective amputation.

    The question is, if both sides agree, should it be allowed?

    Sounds like an S&M factory to me.

    Sounds like you want to allow legalized assault by agreement...

    What would be off limits? Gang rape? Waterboarding? Decapitation?

    I suppose this is a corollary to the argument for legal slavery if the contracting parties agree... Never gonna happen.

    why shouldn't consenting adults be allowed to arrange whatever work arrangement they want? Hell, if someone paid me enough i'd agree to work for such a company.

    Whoa...

    I am not saying I want that - for the record.

    I am asking the question, should it be allowed? We have a lot of libertarians on this site, and from a libertarian perspective, I would think they would allow it.

    On that same theme, should a business owner be allowed to mandate sexual favors as a condition of employment?

    This is not a serious question. Legally you cannot waive your rights, for an employment contract or any other reason.

    Like I said before, the exception appears to be sanctioned pugilism...
