Wedding announcement costs gay woman job at Benedictine (SJ-R)
It wasn’t being gay that cost Laine Tadlock her job in administration at Benedictine University’s Springfield campus. Her orientation was no secret to her employers. They knew when she was hired five years ago, Tadlock said.
It wasn’t that she and her spouse, Kae Helstrom, went to Iowa this summer to be married, after a 2009 Iowa Supreme Court ruling opened the door to gay marriages in that state. Her employer knew the marriage was happening, too, she said.
