    He also once allegedly remarked about her infrequent sex life by saying, "that's like having a Lamborghini in the garage and never driving it."

    Knight and Nelson -- both married with children -- started exchanging text messages, mostly about personal matters, such as their families. Knight's wife, who also worked in the dental office, found out about the messages and demanded Nelson be fired. The Knights consulted with their pastor, who agreed that terminating Nelson was appropriate.

    Knight fired Nelson and gave her one month's severance. He later told Nelson's husband that he worried he was getting too personally attached and feared he would eventually try to start an affair with her.

    Nelson was stunned because she viewed the 53-year-old Knight as a father figure and had never been interested in starting a relationship, Fiedler said.

    Nelson filed a lawsuit alleging gender discrimination, arguing she would not have been terminated if she was male. She did not allege sexual harassment because Knight's conduct may not have risen to that level and didn't particularly offend her, Fiedler said.

    In other words, he was flirting with her, his wife found out, and demanded that he let her go. Not exactly innocent on his part. I'd say that she has a case, not for sexual discrimination, but sexual harassment.
    This isn't some multinational corporation where the parties can be transferred to different departments, it's a freaking dentist office! What's this guy supposed to do? Shut his business down because he is too distracted to work and he can't fire the distraction?

    Sexual harassment! Yeah, against her! Strutting around flaunting camel toe, swollen cleavage and a tight ass is one hell of a distraction. Hell, I'm getting distracted just thinking about her.......................I'll be back in a little while..................................

    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    Now that's an excellent idea right there.

    Well, not exactly 1. Actually, the wife worked in the office, too.

    That changes things. Not only did The Twit have perky tits, but she was 21 years younger, too!

    The whole ordeal to me sounded like the guy was having a midlife crisis and thought he'd go for an employee. What was revealed elsewhere, would have clearly been sexual harassment towards her, had it been in a corporate environment. She was a stellar long term employee by his own words, married, with kids, and not engaging his deviant behavior. His wife finds out he was flirting with her and demands she be fired, understandable feelings.

    Personally I view it as sexual harassment and the guy to be an absolute douche bag.

    Fact is, it's a free market system and he can fire her for almost any reason he chooses, or no reason at all. But some well meaning politician will try to pass a law limiting the reasons for termination, and awaaaay we go, down the road already paved by Europeans.

    I don't want to go down that road. Leave it the way it is; it's his business, his employee.

    In fact, I think she is a crybaby for not getting another job during the month she was terminated, but still being paid.
