In Iowa, Supreme Court: It's Legel To Fire An Employee For Being Irresistibly Sexy
Women in Iowa beware: If your boss thinks you’re really really ridiculously good looking, he can fire you. And it’s perfectly legal.
Women in Iowa beware: If your boss thinks you’re really really ridiculously good looking, he can fire you. And it’s perfectly legal. The all-male Iowa Supreme Court refused to reinstate a lawsuit Friday, noting that a dentist didn’t break the law when he fired an employee who had worked for him for 10 years because he and his wife saw her as a threat to their marriage, reports the Associated Press. Melissa Nelson, the 32-year-old dental assistant was by all accounts a stellar employee. But her boss, James Knight, complained of her tight clothing, “once telling her that if his pants were bulging that was a sign her clothes were too revealing.”

Makes a lot of sense; women believe they can dress anyway they like and its the males offense for looking. This may well be a issue in a beach scenario where all are dressed the same, however in a office environment when there is a job to be done, it should not allowable for the female to distract the rest of the work force with a bit of cleavage.

This Is Silvio Berlusconi's 'Dentist' Nicole Minetti [22 Photos]

Over a year ago there was a gossip story out of Italy where Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi had his teeth smashed and needed to have some work done on his mouth. Ironically, he ended up visiting a dental hygienist named Nicole Minetti, who had just graduated from hygiene schooling.

This decision is so flawed. A person is hired to perform certain tasks. They need to have certain knowledge and skills. Their behavior needs to be professional and appropriate. Beyond that, their looks are not allowed to dictate whether they get fired, that is discrimination. The employer said she was an exemplary employee for ten years!

She needs to get this elevated to Federal Court; she is the aggrieved party and this is patently unfair.

Where I work we have people with tatoos, fat people, old people, gay people, religious people, and everyone just gets along.

If he can't control himself, he should have sought ongoing counseling for HIMSELF. She is being punished for his weakness, this is outrageous.

I am not a liberal, so don't even go there. The Court has erred and this will not stand if she pursues it. I hope she does, it is sickening.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27352798

Nelson insisted she was never interested in Knight romantically, regardless of his own feelings.
'Absolutely not,' she said. 'I'm happily married.'
Since Knight fired her she has worked as a waitress six nights a week.
While her former boss claimed her clothes were so tight he couldn't look at her without being aroused, Nelson said the only outfit she wore to work was standard scrubs worn by many nurses and assistants in dental offices.
Asked if she saw herself as irresistibly attractive, Nelson laughed at the question.
'I'm just an ordinary girl,' she said. 'Just an ordinary mom.'
