    No of course my example is WAY over the top for humor purposes but the point is who gets to debate efficiency and waste? If its not a job requirement I dont buy it.
    It looks like a valid business model.

    Since it's your business, there's no valid reason it should be made illegal.

    I feel this is a violation of equal employment opportunity due to the fact that not everyone has a computer at home to be able to apply.
    There is such a thing as a public library where people can get free access to the internet.

    Good post.

    This is probably the closest to how I feel.
    It's not a civil rights violation but its certainly wrong and not right and there's no real reason a company can't accept a few paper applications. The number would be really low and have no real impact on the company. Since it was brought up I also wonder if there are other examples out there where a job requires something of you that isn't need to do the actually job? Interesting.

    Wanting to be able to fill out a paper application does not equal lazy. At least someone is looking for a job and not sitting home doing nothing all damn day.

    BTW, best thing to do is call and ask if they are taking them before you drive all the way there and waste high dollar gas only to be told we only take them on our website

    How they what to apply does not make a damn bit of difference. My point was they are too stupid or lazy to figure out how to apply as the employer has specified.

    The moral implications are quite nill in my estimation (mostly highly overplayed for dramatic effect). I was thinking it was mostly a matter of determining that your sole ability to store and receive said applications was in the cloud.

    The reason companies do this is alot of them lack the space to store applications for the required number of days (depending on the state law). Its much easier to store applications on a server than in the physical store. Also at least in NY, unemployment offices usually have a section of computers that have internet access.

    A right is something that is not provided at the expense of someone else.
    Oh, someone does not have access to the internet; we must get government involved and make it a right.
    Oh, someone does not have access to a computer; we must get government involved and make it a right.
    Oh, someone does not have access to a suit; we must get government involved and make it a right.
    Oh, someone does not have access to a car; we must get government involved and make it a right.
    Itís lunacy.

    I feel this is a violation of equal employment opportunity due to the fact that not everyone has a computer at home to be able to apply.
    My local unemployment office has a computer lab with a dozen computers and at least a few people who are available to help with applications, make a resume, etc.

    Chances are if you, for whatever reason, can't fill out an online app, you probably aren't qualified for that job anyway.
