Could you lose your job because you're "living in sin" with your boyfriend?
That's what Ashlie Simpson, 31, of Colorado, claimed. She said that her employer Colorado Christian University fired her because of her lifestyle:
"I was shocked to learn that CCU was concerned about my personal life, and even more distressed when they chose to fire me because of it," Simpson told ABC news. "When they refused to discuss it further, I felt I had no choice but to take legal action."
Simpson's attorney, Elwyn Schaefer, said a coffee break may have sparked offensive questions about his client and her lifestyle by university staff.
"We believe she was penalized for her lifestyle, mainly living with her boyfriend," Schaefer said.
