Nancy Vollertsen Discusses Controversial Iowa Supreme Court Ruling with KARE 11

07.16.13

On Friday, July 12, the Iowa Supreme Court ruled that a Fort Dodge, Iowa dentist did not discriminate despite firing an attractive, female employee over fear that she was a threat to his marriage. The Iowa Supreme Court said that the employer did have a legal right to let his employee go due to their relationship, as they were friends outside of work and often texted each other.

Nancy Vollertsen clarified that the firing was not about the employee being attractive, but rather appropriate workplace behavior. "She wasn't fired for being too attractive," said Vollertsen, "She was fired for the nature of the relationship she had with her boss."

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
