A boss who used his secretary's name to buy plane tickets for a trip with his girlfriend and then gave the secretary's job to his lover was named Bad Boss of 1991 by the Women's Alliance for Job Equity.

Alliance Executive Director Robin Robinowitz said Friday the 1991 bad boss crop was worse than the 1990 winners, who included a man who asked his secretary to spot pretty women in a bar for him and then alert him by beeper.The worst boss this year was nominated by medical secretary Evelyn Lipschutz.

Her boss used her name to buy plane tickets for a getaway with his girlfriend. The plane crashed and the pair ended up in a hospital, the alliance said.

The boss's wife learned of the affair and sued for divorce. The boss then fired Lipschutz so his lover could have her job, the alliance said.
