Melissa Nelson worked as a dental assistant in Iowa for ten years until she was fired by her boss who found her too “irresistible” and considered that a threat to his marriage.
And beyond that, the Iowa Supreme Court has agreed with him and allowed the firing.
Really Iowa? We were just starting to love you.
“I think it is completely wrong. I think it is sending a message that men can do whatever they want in the work force.”
A-GREED! We can't believe the courts supported him!!! For shame!
Although the two never cheated together, it seems the dentist, James Knight, started texting her while she was still employed and took it too far at one point.
James asked “how often she experienced an orgasm” over text.
Uh…and she’s the one who lost her job?
But things didn’t get carried away there because Melissa cut him off, but his wife, who also worked with them, found out about the texts.
And somehow he's still alive!
Jeanne Nelson wanted Melissa fired and, after consulting their pastor, it was decided she would be fired.
Just a little advice to the wife: this is about your husband, not Melissa.
Even though it was determined that Melissa was fully capable of her job, the fact that James wants to get with her is enough for her to lose her job.
We have to admit we’re pretty shocked with this outcome.
Too hot to work? Most of Hollywood would be unemployed with that standard.
Best of luck to Melissa, and be happy you no longer have a boss who is secretly after you! Hopefully, your next boss will just look at you and see talent and outstanding ethics.
