Firing Of Woman For Being Too Attractive Was Legal

Iowa Supreme Court justices found that a male dentist did not discriminate against a female employee "when he fired her out of fear that her good looks might prompt him into an extramarital affair," the Des Moines Register reports.

Associated Press: "Coming to the same conclusion as it did in December, the all-male court found that bosses can fire employees they see as threats to their marriages, even if the subordinates have not engaged in flirtatious or other inappropriate behavior. The court said such firings do not count as illegal sex discrimination because they are motivated by feelings, not gender."
