I was meeting with a new client last week. The scenario: A male manager and a female employee engaged in inappropriate, albeit consensual, conduct. One client option is terminating him but merely reprimanding her. But isn’t that sex discrimination?
Not in the eyes of the case law: It empowers an employer to hold managers to a higher standard than rank-and-file employees.
Is there support for that result in the Bible? Read Luke 12:48: “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” The legal and the moral converge.
