he Iowa Supreme Court says a dentist did not commit sex discrimination when he fired an attractive female assistant he viewed as a threat to his marriage.The court ruled Friday that a boss can fire an employee he considers an “irresistible attraction,” even if the employee has done nothing wrong. The decision is the first in Iowa, but in line with rulings elsewhere.

  1. Presumably the same thing would have happened if the assistant was male. Atrocious behaviour, not sex discrimination. The decent thing would be to say goodbye, pay the lady and give her a good reference. Either wife or dental assistant.
