As It Stands blog: If employee’s ‘Too Hot’ boss can fire them says court

Good Day World!

So, it’s come to this:

A dentist acted legally when he fired a longtime assistant because he had grown too attracted to her and worried he would try to start an affair, the Iowa Supreme Court reaffirmed Friday in its second crack at the controversial case.

Coming to the same outcome as it did in December, but clarifying its rationale, the court found that bosses can fire employees that they and their spouses see as threats to their marriages. The court said such firings do not count as sex discrimination because they are motivated by feelings, not gender. (Read story here)

What’s a poor girl (or guy) going to do now? Start dressing like clowns and gain lots of weight quickly to become unattractive to save their job? I don’t know about you, but that just doesn’t seem right. I hesitate to guess what the courts will say next…on any subject!

You can bet on one thing, it’ll be about something some prigs think needs changing because it doesn’t conform to the laws of Big Brother!

Time for me to walk on down the road…
