Dismissal from work

No, not mine.

Just a thought. I read an online story today which told of a paedophile claiming unfair dismissal because of dismissal from work after his conviction. It wasn't a post where children were involved.

If it is considered acceptable to dismiss someone because of what they have done, even if it is unrelated to the job and did not take place within work, then how will rehabilitation ever happen?

I note that the organisation he worked for was a Christian one.

Is there an easy way round this? Or are we essentially saying that after certain convictions have taken place, then that person should forever be shunned and not allowed to try and remake their lives?
