I supervise a group of people who get along very well. We go out after work every week or so for cocktails and relaxing after work. I developed a flirtatious relationship with one of our regular cocktail waitresses. (I thought about asking her out, but never worked up my nerve). My employees told her that our department is hiring. She applied and our H.R. department selected her for final interviews. It turns out she has an M.B.A. and seems qualified, but I would feel weird hiring her after having her wait on us so many times in her short, short skirt. Can I get into any legal trouble if I do not hire her?
You will only be in trouble if someone knows you wrote this letter and are turning the applicant down because of your frustrated libido.
Grow up and act like a real adult. While you’re at it, try serving drinks for a few days to dolts like yourself. You might learn a thing or two.

Stop worrying about the law and start worrying about the Karma Bus that is about to run you down. Turning down a qualified applicant because you once had romantic inclinations about her is punishing her for your personal impulses. If she is the most qualified candidate, hire her and stop thinking about the skirt. Anything else makes you a jerk.
