Can a freelancer be rejected work because of a previous affair? My boss just wrote me an email telling me that we couldn't work together anymore due to his wife finding out about his infidelity issues and not due to my incompetencies by any means. He clearly stated that my work was flawless and I was completely devoted to his company as a freelance designer. Isn't this prue wrong doing on his end?

I could see this being considered a type of sex discrimination. Your work would not be rejected if you were a man and not a woman. However, you have a bigger problem in that if you are a freelancer you may be considered an independent contractor, so therefore even if it were discrimination you may have no recorse since you may not be an employee.
