"Groups with guitars are on the way out, Mr. Epstein"
Dick Rowe, A & R man
Pretty poor decision on the school's part to offer a job to the father if they knew he was the father, but otherwise private schools should be as free to be idiotic in the eyes of the world as they want to be.
“And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822
Didn't we already discuss this ad infinitum in another recent thread on just this topic?
This report confirms my suspicions in the other thread that the college admin felt compassion towards this woman with a family on the way and found a way to allow her continuing support. She was fired because she violated the terms of her contract. He was hired AFTER they were married and he is not violating the terms of his new contract.

Basically, she was an employee when she had pre-marital sex, her then boyfriend was not an employee. She knew the rule, she broke it, she was fired. She married her boyfriend. Then, her now husband applied for and got the job.
This couple is simply executing a get rich quick scheme.

You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

His contract says he will not have sex outside of marriage.
Guess what? He is married and therefore not in breach of the contract. Yes, he had sex before marriage, but that has nothing to do with the terms of his contract that wasn't put in place until after such point.
What MAY be relevant is attempting to prove ADMINISTRATIVE staff is NOT part of "religion," but rather only a "business matter," which is what the attorney is trying to argue. That has been successful in some EEOC suits where a relation held a woman should be paid less than a man - because the men are "ministers" and the women aren't. By proving the men do no ministering and it just an evasion of law, such cases have been won.
