The Iowa state Supreme Court has upheld the decision that a dentist acted within the law when he fired an assistant for being “irresistible”.
Melissa Nelson who had been working for Dr. James Knight since 1999 was fired in January 2010 as she posed a threat to his marriage.
The ruling has sparked debate around the world. Employment Attorney, Glen Savits, says he is shocked to see this happen in the 21st century:
“I think the women in Iowa should probably should start going to work in burqas for fear that the boss might find them sexually attractive and terminate them.”
Melissa Nelson, says she saw Knight as a father figure and was shocked when he said that he couldn’t be trusted around her.
