Ashlie Simpson, a 31 year-old student services advisor, claims she was fired from Colorado Christian University in January, 2012 after being questioned if she was "living in sin" with her boyfriend.
"I was shocked to learn that CCU was concerned about my personal life, and even more distressed when they chose to fire me because of it," Simpson told ABC News.
Simpson and her lawyer believe that the University fired her for having sexual relations outside of marriage and accusations of a relationship with a married co-worker. Simpson said the second complaint was unfounded and arose from a simple coffee break with a co-worker.
Simpson is now suing her former employer for damages, back and future pay, future benefits and invasion of privacy.
Colorado Christian recently filed a lawsuit against the Obama administration over the Affordable Care Act.
