I dunno. Few women are really a vamp, meaning with universal attractiveness. Most ordinary women appeal only to some men. That's why they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So, if a woman is not the type of a certain man, and vice versa of course, there is nothing wrong with her, or him.

It should be noted that in the dentist case, he worked with the assistant for 10 years. That's a long time. Obviously, it grows on him. Perhaps he should rotate assistants every few years. And let that be a lesson to other men.

That's just not what people mean when they talk about rotating employees to different positions!

If you were in a supervisory role at a megacorp, you would be a nightmare for the HR department.

Well, I figured everyone had already heard the punchline about "Sure, but just make up your mind so I can set up the dentist's chair"...

Gosh, is it still a mystery why I retired as early as I could?

The woman who got fired for "being too sexy" will be a guest on "CBS This Morning - Saturday" on 1/5.

I suspect if she'd been fired for being ugly, somehow the media would manage to relegate her story to radio.

Yet another failure of the sensitivity training program.

Perhaps one of the forum's legal eagles can comment.
I agree it is not just but it is legal. As far as I know, he wasn't obligated to give her anything.

This entire situation sounds a bit like an old Seinfeld episode, or several episodes. I believe that I have viewed too many Seinfeld repeats at this stage of my life.

Like many professionals in a one person practice her employer didn't think strategically. He could have as well told her that his wife viewed her as a potential competitor for his attention and that for the sake of his marriage he would like to help her find a position in another practice. Then he could network with his peers or engage a medical recruiting firm to facilitate her placement, even pay her a bonus when she lands another job. That would have been A LOT CHEAPER than the litigation and notoriety.

I was one of those types, too. My mind and upbringing never grew out of the 70s and 80s. Fortunately all my political incorrectness was universally dismissed as just "mulligan being mulligan".
