Employee's premarital sex NOT immoral

In this recent latest of Leus vs. St. Scholastica's College, the Supreme Court held that a female teacher working as a non-teaching staff in a sectarian school cannot be dismissed on grounds of premarital sexual relations even if it resulted in her getting pregnant.

[1] Public and secular morality should determine the prevailing norms of conduct, not religious morality.
[2] The employee's pregnancy out of wedlock is not a disgraceful or immoral conduct since she and the father of her child have no impediment to marry each other. (G.R. No. 187226; January 28, 2015)
