Легальны ли монастыри при феминизме? -- Ramsey lawyers wouldn't explain in court filings how the company investigated its employees to make sure they were living righteously when asked by O'Connor's attorneys, saying that the request was vague and irrelevant. The company handbook doesn't specifically deem premarital sex a violation of its policies, according to O'Connor's complaint.

Since Tennessee is an at-will employee state, employees can be fired for any reason, or no reason. Ramsey Solutions believes that means the company can fire employees over their sex lives, which are not protected activities, company lawyers argued.

Jennifer Bennett Shinall, a Vanderbilt University law school professor who focuses on discrimination, including the areas of gender and pregnancy, said she's curious how the company investigates its employees' sex lives in a way that isn't biased against women, who, because of their possible ability to get pregnant, can't as easily hide their sex lives.
