NAPERVILLE, Ill., Oct 17, 2005 (UPI via COMTEX) -- A Chicago-area woman is suing the Christian-based AFLAC insurance company for not following its own standards when her husband began having an affair at work.

Lori Johnson, an AFLAC associate in Naperville, divorced her husband, also an AFLAC supervisor, in 2002 after she discovered he was having an affair with another associate.

Johnson told the Chicago Sun-Times she was originally drawn to work for the insurer by its Christian approach, prayer at corporate meetings and the company's demand that associates not engage in "conduct involving moral turpitude, dishonesty, fraud, deceit (or) willful misrepresentation."

But she says sex pictures of her husband and his lover were passed around the office, and the two bragged about their affair, as her husband steered clients from his wife to his lover.

In her lawsuit, Johnson says the company allowed behavior to go on that violates its own policies.

An AFLAC spokeswoman declined to comment on the suit.
