Top brass

  Today, my boss told me to kick out of the hotel anyone who was clearly a prostitute trolling for men. I spotted a woman in a miniskirt approaching a guy in the bar, so I told her politely to leave. Despite the skirt, turns out she's the hotel manager and the man was her fiancé. I got fired so hard and fast. FML

I agree it’s possible your boss set you up to get fired. And you should have recognized the hotel manager.

But it would have been more professional to watch more closely and act based on behavior rather than dress. It’s not just prostitutes who dress in a sexually seductive manner, so basing your action on a miniskirt and just coming up to a man was a mistake. On the other hand had she come up to multiple individuals (one at a time) and then reached some sort of agreement with one then she (or he) would be more likely to be a prostitute. Obviously looking for that takes longer and more observation and focusing on the miniskirt was easier, but it also got you fired.

Frankly I think that unless the prostitution is flagrant and obvious, business should spend more time on making sure their employees act appropriately to their customers and less time looking for hookers.

To be fair, in many large companies that's nearly impossible. Especially a hotel industry where they have three shifts of workers, and if this is a fancy enough hotel to have a bar and or restaurant inside the lobby, then you have multiple entities operating within the premises. Besides, they could have been new.

It sounds like a set up from the boss. How we're you supposed to complete this task without slut shaming?
The boss would know how she dressed. And how is he your boss if the women was the actual boss? I would have told the manager that you were set up.
I'm guessing you hadn't been working there long

So you assumed a woman was a whore just because she was wearing sexy clothes and was talking to a man?

Geez, 3/4 of the girls I went to college with would be thrown out of your hotel by you.

I’m also kind of wondering if the mini-skirt was really a true, barely covers the butt mini-skirt, or if it was a little longer. I’ve seen skirts that lie between mini and above the knee, and that would make more sense for a manager to wear but easy to mistake for pushing inappropriate.

While it may have been a set up, what's so wrong with wearing a mini skirt? If her behavior is otherwise acceptable & all the appropriate areas are covered, showing some skin isn't a reason for her to be kicked out. YDI

As someone who can't read social cues to save my life, I could likely only complete this task by going off of how they dressed and simply approaching men, which is flawed from the get go. I couldn't think of any other way to reliably do this.
