    How about you campaign for a dress code then? My guess is Mr. Dentist already made some improper advances and was turned down, otherwise who cares if an employee is good looking? Sex sells in EVERY part of life. Even if she did rile up the ol' trouser snake, why not store up the energy and smash a few headboards with the missus? Ten years and only now is his wife insecure? Something more had to be happening.

    and btw, I'm sure the all-male court has probably had opportunities like this too...positions of power and authority, right? Bros before fairness.

    If the woman in the photo is "too hot" I think this court just boosted the self esteem of at least 100,000 women and that's just a start. Seriously I just don't see what she's talking about.

    I was gonna say that myself but as a guy it's more rude coming from me, especially as an ugly guy. Maybe those tight clothes did her a world of good. Then again my tastes are usually different when the subject of sex appeal is brought up on here anyway. I've thought several women deemed ugly were attractive.

    No rulings of the higher courts seem to surprise me anymore. The people of Iowa should be burning the courthouse down as a show of respect

    First, if she's too hot...well, ummm, just well. Second, maybe he needs to control his penis. And third,@politix, why the heck can't I click into my notifications???!!!

    @culinary You mean in your e-mail notifications? If so, sorry, I was on this site and just clicked my number which doesn't do anything and then the envelope. My bad.

    Gender discrimination, also called sex discrimination, is the practice of treating individuals differently because of their gender. Gender discrimination has historically been perceived as limiting the opportunities of women, but modern civil rights law also includes the protection of men.

    {He treated her differently. Had she been a man he would not have been aroused presumably. Gender discrimination.}

    @Denizen_Kate " Is that why dentists have the highest suicide rate of any profession?"

    Many of them are down in the mouth ...

    ****quadruple facepalm**** If the laws we have aren't enforced for authentic discrimination like this, one really starts to seriously believe the insanity of our government and how it has infected nearly every place.....

    Perverted bastard.....

    If she was an AT WILL employee, she could be fired for NO REASON at all and it would be TECHNICALLY legal.

    She employees the SAME right in that she can quit, give NO REASON for quitting and she's legal to do it.

    Now IF she signed a contract, then there would be some legal walls for the boss to jump over.

    She needs a better lawyer. That dentist needs a shrink. Who's in the position of power here? Not the $15 per hour dental assistant for sure. Aholes!

    A wife with low self esteem and low self confidence is the root cause, but "being too attractive" was the excuse the dentist used because he did not have the fortitude to take a stand.

    Its Discrimination, pure and simple, and I doubt this was the reason. Whats next, you can fire someone because they're bald?

    You can in Ohio. I saw a nurse be discharged, because she dyed it deep cherry red. The hospital said it was a distraction from her patients! They got away with it too. I think its BULLSHIT that they can get away with firing anyone for any reason.

    *lightbulb* THAT'S why I can't find work. I must send out a "wheelchair vibe" with my job applications. As we all know, the ladies, and more than a few dudes, dig cyborgs.

    Seems we're damned if we look good and damned if we don't. What if I just stop wearing red lipstick? Would that be toning it down enough? </sarcasm>

    @catiz "Knight admitted she was a fantastic employee. But in the last months of her employment, he began complaining that her tight clothing was arousing him. He eventually dismissed her at his wife's insistence."

    @DreamStat1c
    I understood she called him at home on personal business. I doubt many men would like their wife's male boss to do that.

    She worked for him for ten years and now all the sudden she's "too attractive"? Wonder how many customers he lost. So you can fire on "Feelings", so if someone "feels" uncomfortable around black people or Peruvian-Jews they can just fire them?

    Did he have a dress code to not wear tight fitting or suggestive clothes to work? Why didn't he implement one if he did not? Or was this just all due to a jealous dentists wife?

    Being an employer myself I'd like to think I have full control over who works and who doesn't at my shop. Don't want to get fired? Do you best to make yourself irreplaceable.

    Glad I don't work for you! You sound as egotistical as the dentist. He admitted she did excellent work. You should NOT be able to fire someone just, because you feel like it! Just cause should be the law of the land not, because you don't like the color of someones hair, thie to hot or their conduct outside of work! If you want expect that to occur then draw up a contract like a lot of company's do.

    @classychazy Wake me up when you've got over 2 decades running a small business successfully. It's not as easy or cut and dried as you might think.

    @slayer98_l. Boo who! Neither is being a hospice nurse for 2 decades! You and other like your self GET OFF on holding others lively hoods in your hands. Basically in my eyes you are egotistical, simple mined individuals who think you are better then those who work for you. All I can say is I hope you get the nurse you deserve if you ever get a terminal illness its called Karma and I really hope you are a decent person, because if not you will suffer.
