The Iowa Supreme Court unanimously rules it is legal for a male employer to fire a female employee he considers “too attractive” under the Iowa Civil Rights Act

In this case, a male dentist fired his female assistant of ten years, at the request of his wife, because he was afraid he may attempt to have an affair with the employee.  The dentist and female employee had exchanged consensual text messages, some of which may be considered sexually suggestive.  The court was quick to point out the female employee did not allege sexual harassment or hostile work environment.  Rather, the employee claimed was she was fired because of her gender.  Click here to read an article published on the decision.
