Four fired for strip club visit - WSJ

Morgan Stanley elbows tech boys

Morgan Stanley has fired four employees for visiting a strip club while attending a technology conference in Phoenix, Arizona, according to a report in today's Wall Street Journal.

The financial workers - all men - were technology industry specialists, said the newspaper report, and accompanied at least one client to the adult club.

The conference was run by Morgan Stanley and held last November.

After a bruising sex discrimination case in the US last year, Morgan Stanley put in place a strict equal opps policy, which obliges male staff to avoid events which preclude women, which can include strip clubs and even golf clubs.

Which begs the question whether attorneys for the ousted employees will argue that there were indeed women at the "event"...they were the ones whose clothes kept falling off.

A spokeswoman for Morgan Stanley declined to comment further on the story except to reiterate that, "We don't think it's appropriate to comment on personnel matters". ®
