Firing Females Because the Wife of Employer is Jealous?

On Behalf of | May 26, 2016 | Workplace Discrimination |

The article below, speaking to a case thrown out by a NY Court in which a female employee was fired by business owner’s wife because wife thought the plaintiff was “too attractive,” is another nail in the coffin of “gender stereotype” discrimination. This firm remains committed the belief that discriminating against someone because they display “gender” characteristics of which an employer doesn’t approve – a doctrine which is supported by both Federal and New Jersey law – should be illegal and should be an appropriate avenue of redress for a harmed worker.

Why should the “attractive” woman lose her job because the bosses’ wife doesn’t subjectively approve of the measure and mode of the plaintiff’s “attractiveness quotient?” Must the attractive woman working for an insecure owner’s wife “ugly up” to keep her job if she’s otherwise professional in her looks and behavior?
