I will never so much as smile at my boss Amelia again. Why? Because the Iowa Supreme Court ruled today that an employer can fire an employee that he or see finds sexually “irresistable.” The case in question was dentist James Knight who fired his attractive assistant Melissa Nelson because both he and his wife thought this woman could come between them.
